Accessibility

We are committed to providing a website that has content accessible to as many users as possible – regardless of ability or browsing technology.

Options to change text size are available within the standard browser settings:

  • in Internet Explorer: choose View > Text Size
  • in Firefox: choose View > Zoom > Zoom in
  • in Chrome: View > Zoom In / Zoom Out

This website will render with more limited functionality if style sheets are turned off, or client side scripting languages such as JavaScript, are not available.

The website conforms to W3C WCAG v2.0 guidelines for website accessibility to Priority Level 2 (AA) where possible. Measures including:

  • Descriptive Alt tag information on all images
  • High contrast colours throughout
  • Skip to Content links for Screen Readers
  • Semantic markup and content structuring
  • Sitemaps and Accessibility information from the footer menu
