We have developed this website to be accessible on a range of browsers, and by people with a wide range of abilities.

For example;

  • We haven’t circumvented any of the browser’s inbuilt accessibility tools, so for people with partial sight, the zoom is very effective.
  • We have added in ARIA landmark roles where we can, to help with navigation when using a screen reader (JAWs etc).
  • We have tried to adhere to contrast ratios (text/background) wherever possible.
  • Images include alt-text wherever possible.
  • Sitemap is included for ease of navigation.
  • Print style-sheets clean the design so that only content is available.
  • We have tested the site using colour blindness checkers.

To aid accessibility, we have included ‘access keys’ to help with navigation around the site. The following keys are available from all pages of the site. See below for details of how to use access keys in different web browsers. Go to our website site map for a list of all the pages on this site.

The site is optimised for viewing in modern browsers, but should be easily viewable on older systems.
