We have tried to make this website as accessible as possible and easy to use for everyone, regardless of circumstance or ability.
All our page templates are AA accessible according to WC3 standards as a mininum requirement and we make every effort to ensure that all the content on our site meets this standard too.
We developed the design and layout of the site so that it can be used by blind or partially sighted users.
We are making every effort to ensure that we don't exclude any users. For example:
- We try to use clear and simple language
- We use alternative text for all our images
- The HTML we produce conforms to the standard XHTML 1.0 Transitional
- We have tested the colours we use in the design for contrast
We try to publish all our text content as accessible HTML rather than in other formats such as PDF. Where we do publish PDFs or other formats our policy is to make them as accessible as we can.
We decided not to use access keys as this can cause confusion with general keyboard shortcuts and additional site-specific access keys may not be helpful to users.
Please contact us if you have any questions, if you are having difficulties using the site, or would like to know more about what we are doing to make our website more accessible.
