We have taken a great deal of care to design and implement this site with accessibility in mind.
We have followed the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines in ensuring the content of the site is defined with sizes of relative rather than absolute units. This means text can be re-sized using browser controls (many sites use absolute values and therefore re-sizing has no effect). Please see the Browser Compatibility section for a discussion of possible problems relating to font re-sizing.
We have also endeavoured to ensure that downloadable information available on this site is accessible (see Downloading Information).
The site uses styles to format content. In the few unavoidable instances where tables are used to present information, we have tried to ensure that those tables linearise consistently and logically.
A text only link is offered on every page of this Website. Once in text only mode, the background colour and font attributes can be easily set to suit your needs by selecting the Change text only settings at the top of any page.
