We recognise the importance of providing a website that is inclusive and available for all visitors to our website.
This website aims to meet or exceed the requirements of the level A criteria of the World Wide Web Consortium Web Accessibility Initiative (WCAG WAI) 2.0 guidelines.
- Text size – You can vary the text size by using your browser’s text resize option: View — Text Size. However, depending on the text settings that you choose, the layout of some pages may display differently than we originally intended.
- 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.
- Colour contrast – We have chosen text and background colour combinations to help 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.
