We want to make sure our website is accessible to everyone – that’s why we’re working towards complying with Priority 2 of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. We’re continually improving our website to meet these guidelines, and we’ve designed the site with the following parameters in mind:
We design our pages to be viewed on a variety of browsers, using responsive page design allowing clear navigation on mobiles.
We use header elements to structure the pages and make the information clear.
We use stylesheets to keep font sizes consistent, with the exception of graphical text.
You can increase and decrease the size of text, to make it easier for you to read, by using the ‘View’ option in your browser.
We use ‘Alt’ tags on our images that describe what the image is if you can’t see it.
We avoid using colour exclusively to display information.
