We have developed this site to be AA compliant and all pages should comply with our interpretation of all relevant priority 1, 2 and 3 W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
Navigating this website
This site has been designed for ease of use. The main navigation includes all the main sections of the website and runs across the top of each page. Clicking on any of these items will take you to a specific section of the website, where the navigation is displayed down the left. Choosing a section will also reveal any further content pages within a section. This style of navigation is consistent throughout the site.
Cascading Style Sheets have been used to control the presentation of pages and properly structured mark-up 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
Images and alt tags
All images used on the site include 'Alt' tags descriptive text alternatives. This allows users to see what the image is meant to convey even if it doesn't load, or if images have been switched off or if using a screen reader to read the web page rather than view.
We've done our best to ensure this site is as accessible as possible, but accessibility problems can arise despite our best efforts. If you do find any accessibility barriers that affect or prevent your use and enjoyment of the site, please let us know and we'll do our best to address the problem as soon as possible.
Use of Adobe Flash®
This site makes use of the Adboe Flash player to display dynamic and animated content in an engaging way. If you don't have the player installed on your machine, or if you have a version of the player older than 6.0.23, you will still see the same information presented in a more conventional way as alternative content.
To download the latest version of the Flash Player please go to the Adobe download site
