Features to enhance the site's accessibility

These features have been provided to help make our site as accessible as possible to as many people as possible

  • All text should be resizable using your browser's text-resize option
  • HTML heading elements have been used to represent page structure, supporting assistive technologies that allow page navigation from heading to heading
  • All images have been given appropriate alternative text
  • All major functionality works without javascript although some functions are enhanced with javascript enabled
  • On each page a 'skip to main content' link allows direct access past the navigation to the page's main content, which should make navigation easier if you are using the keyboard or other input device to browse.
