Website accessibility is about making websites easy to use for all users regardless of ability, language, education or technology.
This site has been designed to be accessible to a wide range of users. Below are some of the features used across this site.
High Contrast and Text Only Version
If you have difficulty reading the content of the site, you can reverse the contrast so that light coloured text appears on a dark background. To do this select the Text Only link which can be found at the top of every page or alternatively adjust your browser settings.
Some users might find screen text easier to read by increasing the size at which it is displayed. The option to resize text on the site is located at the top of every page. From here you are able to increase or decrease the size of the text.
As an alternative solution, users can hold Ctrl on their keyboard and use either the mouse scroll wheel or the - or + keys to zoom.
If you have difficulty in using a mouse or similar device, we have implemented a standard access key system to help you move around the site.
