Accessibility

We are committed to ensuring this website can be used effectively by all users, and have made our best efforts to ensure that the core content of sites using this service is accessible. Our aim is to:

  • deliver the same information and the same general functionality to all users regardless of the platform used to access them (e.g. mobile vs desktop);
  • support multi-modal access (e.g. text equivalents of video/audio);
  • facilitate customisation (e.g. freedom to apply user stylesheets to change text size);

We have developed it to conform to HTML5 and CSS3 standards, and have a minimum target accessibility conformance level of WCAG 2.0 Priority 2 (‘AA’).

We use automated tools to help identify potential accessibility problems with the website, and follow good practice where it exists, for example in ensuring that alternative formats exist for images, that page templates are well-structured for navigation and that functionality does not depend on use of a mouse. Please get in touch if you identify accessibility problems or want to suggest improvements.
