Accessibility

Accessibility statement

This site is built with accessibility in mind. We follow the industry standard W3C’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines so that our site is available to everyone.

Our approach

We’ve followed current the best practice which means the site will work on any modern web browser. If you have an older browser the site will still work but may not look as it is designed to be.

The pages of this site are made in a semantic way, that means the page structure is clear even when styling is turned off. We’ve used relative sizes for text so you can easily make the text larger or smaller using your browser’s zoom options (usually under the View menu). We’ve used current techniques to ensure that the site will work even if you don’t have the latest technologies (for example graceful degradation of Javascript effects).

All images should have alternative text so that if you turn off images or have a spoken browser, you’ll still be able to read the content. We’ve also implemented print stylesheets so the site should be clear and easy to read if you decide to print out some pages.

We do not use text re-sizing options or access keys as there is some debate about their usefulness.

We have tested this site on the following web browsers:

  • Internet Explorer 6 and 7 [PC]
  • Firefox 3 [PC]
  • Opera 9 [PC]
  • Safari 3 [Mac]
  • Firefox 3 [Mac]
  • Opera 9 [Mac]
