Accessibility

Where possible we comply to the guidelines set by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) Double A standard.

These are a few of the features we have implemented.

Text size
You can change the text size on our site to make it either larger or smaller via your browser settings. Some browsers allow you to magnify the whole page.

Navigation
A consistent style of presentation on each page allows users to locate navigation mechanisms more easily but also to skip navigation mechanisms more easily to find important content

Contrasting colours
We have taken care to ensure that foreground and background colours on the site contrast effectively. If you want to override the site's colours, you can do this by changing your browser settings.

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)
Style Sheets have been used to control layout and presentation.

Alternative text for graphics
All graphics and images contain descriptive alt tag attributes (alternative text). Where an image has no importance, the alt tag is set to null to make the site easier to read by all users.

Consistent page headings and titles
A consistent heading structure has been used so that page information is compatible with access technology.
