This web site is committed to ensuring access for people with disabilities. Each page on our website will conform to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) Level Double-A.
This means that people using assistive technology such as screen readers will be able to make full use of the site.
- We use HTML as the default information format, and no browser-specific HTML or scripting methods are used in the website.
- Where we do use scripts, they are not critical to the function of the site
- We keep the use of images to a minimum - they should all have "alt" descriptions which should be meaningful.
- We use clear, commonly used fonts (Arial, Helvetica or sans-serif)
- We use Cascading Style Sheets to format and style basic elements of the website, and all colours and fonts can be adjusted by the end user or removed by switching off style sheets.
- Our XHTML pages validate against version "XHTML 1.0 Strict".
- We provide standard access keys and a logical tab order for users who cannot use pointing devices.
