Making our website accessible to users is important to us. To that end we:
- use only dynamic text, rather than graphics, for menus, links and content. Dynamic text can be resized in the browser if a user finds it too small and reader browsers designed for the visually impaired can read it aloud.
- use menus and links that are easy to understand and keep things simple by using labels that people expect to find.
- use semantic mark-up in the HTML code for things like headings, sub-headings, captions, tables and so on. Put simply, this means that they are labelled so their meaning can be understood by browser applications.
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has laid down standards for website accessibility. In ascending order of accessibility these are known as 'A', 'AA' and 'AAA' standard.
Our websites is currently designed to achieve an 'AA' rating.
Please contact us if you think any aspect of our website does not currently conform to this rating.
