We have implemented the following accessibility features on this website.
We have provided ‘skip to main content’ links to allow direct access past the navigation menu to the page’s main content.
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.
HTML heading elements have been used to represent page structure, supporting assistive technologies that allow page navigation from heading to heading.
All hyperlinks should make sense when read out of context, and hyperlinks are clearly presented in a different text style from normal body text.
We have checked text and background color combinations to ensure that the contrast is sufficient and we have also ensured that information is not referenced by color alone.
We have used Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to control the presentation of pages and aim to use 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.
