We have taken the following steps to make this site accessible:

  • A link has been provided at the beginning of each page to provide easy access to this information on accessibility.
  •  HTML heading tags are used to convey document structure. H1 tags are used for main titles, H2 tags for subtitles etc.
  • Navigation menus are marked up as HTML lists. This ensures that the number of links in the list is read out at the start and it can be skipped easily.
  • Images used in this site include descriptive alt tag attributes.
  • We have taken care to ensure that the site's font and background color combinations contrast significantly and are effective in ensuring information is still clear when viewed in different color combinations. (If you wish to override the site's colors, you can do this by changing your browser settings to your own preference.)
  • The fonts used on our site are can be changed in size. You can do this either by using the slider above or by changing your browser settings to your own preference.
  • This site uses cascading style sheets for all visual layout. If your browser or browsing device does not support style sheets at all, the use of structured semantic mark up ensures that the content of each page is still readable and clearly structured.
  • All data tables have header cells, to allow screen readers to render them intelligently.
  • We have, wherever possible, avoided using tables for layout purposes.
  • All forms fields follow a logical tab sequence to ensure easy navigation.
  • Most form fields also have 'label' and 'id' attributes to explicitly associate the form field with its label to allow for easy entry of data.
  • The use of Javascript has been kept to a minimum.
  • Links have been written to make sense when taken out of context.
