Website accessibility statement
This website is designed to be inclusive and to provide access to all users regardless of technological or physical disability.
To ensure that this happens, we have programmed our website following W3C and accessibility guidelines. The site is developed using valid XHTML and cascading style sheets (CSS).
Our site content is separated from presentational elements, which makes it available to any visitors that use technologies such as a screen reader or text only browser.
WAI Level AA accessibility
Whilst we strive to achieve and maintain levels of accessibility that conform to the AA standard, we recognise that it is very hard for to maintain such compliance on a dynamically content driven website.
We aim to continually monitor and improve our compliance to meet as many of the WAI Level AAA guidelines as are achievable.
What is an accessible website?
An accessible website accommodates the full range of users.
Designing for accessibility therefore means there is:
- no standard information user, and
- no standard device for browsing information
An accessible website does not exclude anybody due to:
- their abilities, or
- the method they choose to access the web
You may also use your browser settings to change the text size for the websites that you visit.
How you do this depends on the browser you use:
- Internet Explorer 7/8: Select the ‘Page’ menu, then one of the options under ‘Zoom’ or ‘Text Size’. The default setting is ‘Medium’
- Internet Explorer 6: Select the ‘View’ menu, and select one of the options under ‘Text Size’
- Mozilla Firefox: Select the ‘View’ menu, then ‘Text Size’, then select Increase, Decrease or Normal
- Opera: Select the ‘View’ menu, then one of the ‘Zoom’ percentage options
Other browsers may also have similar options available.
