Accessibility Design

Often internet users with disabilities find web sites difficult or even impossible to use because of the way they are designed. This web site has been designed to be as accessible as possible and to be compatible with the types of adaptive technology used by people with disabilities, including screen readers. As such: -

  1. Text Size - Visitors can control the size of the text and use 'access keys' on the keyboard rather than the mouse to navigate through pages.
  2. Images - All content images used in this site include descriptive ALT attributes. Purely decorative graphics include null ALT attributes. 
  3. Visual Design - This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout. 
  4. Links - Many links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already fully describes the target (such as the headline of an article). Links are written to make sense out of context.

Standards Compliance

All pages on this web site are coded up with HTML5 and use structured semantic markup and use CSS3.
