Features to enhance the site’s accessibility

These features have been provided to help make our site as accessible as possible to as many people as possible.

All text should be resizable using your browser’s text-resize option, with additional navigation provided on the site to increase the font size even further.
Additional navigation has been provided to change the contrast of the site, using the most common requirements, white text on a blue background, and blue text on a yellow background.

If you use your own style sheet, it can be applied to allow changes in the site’s appearance without affecting the readability or accessibility of the information.
HTML heading elements have been used to represent page structure, supporting assistive technologies that allow page navigation from heading to heading.
All images have been given appropriate alternative text.

A navigation bar linking to the main sections of the site is provided at the top and bottom of each page.

The site has been tested to ensure that it is accessible in a wide range of browsers.

Keyboard access

On each page a ‘skip to main content’ link allows direct access past the navigation bars to the page’s main content, which should make navigation easier if you are using the keyboard or other input device to browse.

We have used the following Access keys on this website.

To use the access keys on your computer.

However, we know that using access keys is not a perfect solution and can get in the way of other software you may use. If are used to using the standard keyboard accesskeys, ie accesskey 1 for home page etc.

Visual Design

Cascading Style Sheets have been used to control the presentation of pages and properly structured markup has been used for content

If stylesheets are not supported or are turned off, information on the site can still be accessed and read

Relative font sizes are used, which allows users to resize text as needed
