Making sure the information on our website is easily accessible to all is our priority.
With that in mind we have introduced the following features:
Site structure and content
We have tried to make our site navigation as clear and simple to use as possible.
Headings and navigation menus
HTML heading tags are used to convey document structure. H1 tags are used for main
titles, H2 tags for subtitles etc.
All images used in this site include descriptive alt tag attributes. Where an image
has no use other than being decorative, the alt tag is set to null to allow easy
reading of the site by all users.
We have taken care to ensure that the site's font and background colour combinations
contrast significantly and are effective in ensuring information is still clear
when viewed in different colour combinations. If you wish to override the site's
colours, you can do this by changing your browser settings to your own preference.
The font sizes we use on our site are scalable. Therefore font sizes can be adjusted
(increased or decreased) by using the standard controls which comprise holding down
the Ctrl Key and using the + (plus) or - (minus) keys on your keyboard. Alternatively
by holding down the Ctrl Key and scrolling the wheel on your mouse (if applicable).
This site uses cascading style sheets for some elements of visual layout. If your
browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, or you have chosen
to switch them off, we have endeavoured to ensure that the content of each page
is still readable and clearly structured without stylesheets.
To allow screen readers to render them intelligently, where appropriate we have
used the TH tag to mark the column headings of the table columns. Tables used for
layout use none of the above attributes to ensure that they are not confused with
Forms and fields
All forms and fields follow a logical tab sequence to ensure easy navigation.
Form fields also have "id" attributes to explicitly associate the form field with
its appropriate label to allow for easy entry of data.
All links have been written to make sense when taken out of context. Where appropriate,
we have also added link title attributes to describe the link in greater detail.
We have tried to ensure that the copy on our website is well laid out and easy to
Wherever possible, we would recommend upgrading your browser to the latest version
number to take full advantage of this site.
