Accessibility

All pages on this site are WCAG AAA approved, complying with all priority 1, 2 and 3 guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.

Whilst we would like to say this is categorically so it is a judgement call; many guidelines are intentionally vague and can not be tested automatically. We have reviewed all the guidelines and believe that all these pages are in compliance.

We have strived to make all pages on this site validate as XHTML 1.0 Transitional.

The site also uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to control all of the presentation and layout.

As a result screen reader users can use the screen reader's navigation key to get around the site. If you are listening to the site, menus are grouped together in a more logical fashion.

The content has been written and formatted to make it accessible. For example:

  • links use meaningful text forms can be navigated using the tab key.

    Please note that some assistive technology tools such as the IBM HomePage Reader and WindowEyes already make use of the alt+[access key] combinations. As such, users of these tools will not be able to use these access keys
