Accessibility Features

We have implemented the following accessibility features on this website.

Keyboard Access

We have provided ‘skip to main content’ links to allow direct access past the navigation menu to the page’s main content.

Text Size

You can vary the text size by using your browser’s text resize option: View – Text Size.

Alternative Text for Images

All images have been given appropriate alternative text.

Heading Elements

HTML heading elements have been used to represent page structure, supporting assistive technologies that allow page navigation from heading to heading.

Link Text

All hyperlinks should make sense when read out of context, and hyperlinks are clearly presented in a different text style from normal body text.

Color Contrast

We have checked text and background color combinations to ensure that the contrast is sufficient and we have also ensured that information is not referenced by color alone.

Style Sheets

We have used Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to control the presentation of pages and aim to use properly structured markup for content. If style sheets are not supported or are turned off, information on the site can still be accessed and read.

Compatibility with Browsers and Assistive Technology

This website is designed to be compatible with recent standards-compliant browsers and all major operating systems. Accessibility of this website relies on HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to work with the particular combination of web browser and any assistive technologies or plugins installed on your computer.
