Accessibility

Providing a website that is inclusive and available for all users

We recognise the importance of providing a website that is inclusive and available for all user groups. This page explains:

1. Our approach to making this website accessible;

2. The features provided to enhance the site's accessibility;

3. What to do if you have any questions or feedback for us.

 

Approach

We believe that this website meets or exceeds the requirements of the Priority 1 checkpoints of the World Wide Web Consortium Web Accessibility Initiative (WCAG WAI) 1.0 guidelines.

We believe that this website meets or exceeds the Level A criteria of the checkpoints of the World Wide Web Consortium Web Accessibility Initiative (WCAG WAI) 2.0 guidelines.

 

Accessibility features

Text size: You can vary the text size by using your browser's text resize option: View - Text Size.

Alternative text for images: All images have been given appropriate alternative text.

Heading elements: HTML heading elements have been used to represent page structure, supporting assistive technologies that allow page navigation from heading to heading.

Link text: All hyperlinks should make sense when read out of context, and hyperlinks are clearly presented in a different text style from normal body text.

JavaScript independence: Where JavaScript or other scripts are used for navigation or functionality, an alternative mechanism has been put in place in case your browser does not support these scripts.

Colour contrast: We have checked text and background colour combinations to ensure that the contrast is sufficient and we have also ensured that information is not referenced by colour alone.

Style sheets: We have used Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to control the presentation of pages and have used properly structured markup for content. If style sheets are not supported or are turned off, information on the site can still be accessed and read.
