We are committed to making the information on this website accessible to all people.
To this end, we have designed this website to follows guidelines set out by the W3C (the World Wide Web Consortium). The W3C WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative) produces accessibility guidelines that are an internationally recognised benchmark of accessibility.
In constructing the site, we have applied all WAI Priority 1 and 2 criteria. The benefits of this include:
- Pages are fast to download, regardless of whether you are using broadband or a modem.
- All pages validate as XHTML 1.0 Transitional ensuring that they work with a wide variety of browsers, old and new.
- If your browser or browsing device does not support Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), the content of each page is still readable.
- All images used in this site include descriptive ALT (i.e. alternative text) attributes.
