Accessibility Policy

This site is designed to make information more accessible:

  • All images have text alternatives (ALT attributes)
  • Text uses relative font sizes so that it can be enlarged or reduced using the text size options available in most browsers
  • The site can be navigated without the use of a mouse

Increasing text size

You can increase the text size in most web browsers – look under the View menu for ‘Text Size’, ‘Zoom’, ’Increase / Decrease Text Size’ or similar.

Alternatively, to use your keyboard please press the CTRL Key alongside the Plus or Minus Key, the text size should expand or decrease to reflect your choice.

Contrasting colours & alternative text for graphics

We have taken care to ensure that foreground and background colours on the site contrast effectively. If you want to override the site’s colours, you can do this by changing your browser settings.

All graphics and images contain descriptive alt tag (alternative text) attributes. Where an image has no importance, the alt tag is set to null to make the site easier to read by all users.
