We have tried to make this site as accessible as possible for all visitors and we will continue to develop its accessibility based on feedback. We are always looking to improve the accessibility of our site, so if you find anything difficult to use or read, please let us know.
Our goal for the website is that all pages should meet the Priority 2 (Level AA) checkpoints of the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
We have made the site as usable as we can, but you might have a better experience if you change the settings on your computer to suit your individual needs. For example, you can change the site’s colours, increase the text size, or have the site spoken aloud.
Descriptive link text
When the author of a site uses descriptive link text, all links on the page will make sense even when read out of context. For users of assistive technology (e.g. screen-readers) this can allow them to quickly jump through pages of text to find relevant links.
Meaningful ALT attribute on images
Most images on this site contain additional ‘alternative’ text that is stored with the image. This allows users who otherwise wouldn’t be able to see the image access to the stored information. Although this can help users of assistive technology (e.g. screen-readers), this also applies to visitors who disable images because of a slow internet connection.
This website is compatible with Microsoft Edge, Safari, Firefox and Chrome.
PDF and Accessibility
Visually impaired users may have trouble reading PDF files with screen reader software. To overcome this you can go to the Access Adobe website and use their online conversion tools for Adobe PDF Documents.
