This web site has been designed to make it as widely accessible as possible so that everyone, regardless of ability, can use our site. This page gives information on features included within the site.
Note that you may also need to review the accessibility features in your browser.
All our pages conform to Level A compliance as specified by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines and the majority of Level AA and AAA requirements are also met. Please remember, these are Guidelines and as such, some warnings may not be applicable.
All pages validate as XHTML 1.0 Transitional, and use structured semantic mark-up where possible.
Our CSS also validates.
Structured, semantic markup
We have used structured, semantic mark-up on all our pages, using header tags, list items for navigation menus, address tags, etc.
Graphics, Pictures and Images
Where we have used graphics, pictures and images, we have included text descriptions (‘Alt-Tags’), to comply with internationally recognised Web accessibility guidelines. All graphical navigation buttons are similarly ‘Alt-tagged’. Where graphical images are just for decoration they have NULL alt text (alt=””).
Where appropriate, links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail.
Adjusting the size of the text
Users have the flexibility to resize the text as they wish. The method for doing this varies from browser to browser. Please follow the links below for up-to-date instructions on how to do this on your browser:
