Accessibility features

The following accessibility features have been incorporated throughout our website:

  • There is a text equivalent for every non-text element
  • Documents are organised so that they can be read without Style Sheets
  • When scripts, applets, or other programmatic objects are turned off all pages are still useable
  • All images used in this site include descriptive alt tags attributes. Where an image has no use other than being decorative the alt tag is set to null to allow easy reading of the site by all users.
  • Most of the font sizes we use on our site are sizable. You can change the font size to make it either larger or smaller via your browser settings.
  • We have taken care to ensure that the site's font and background colour combinations contrast significantly and are effective in ensuring information is still clear when viewed in different colour combinations. If you wish to override the site's colours, you can do this by changing your browser settings to your own preference.
  • Most of the pop-up or new windows inform the user
  • Navigation mechanisms are used in a consistent manner
  • All event-handlers are device independent
