We are committed to ensuring that this website is accessible to everyone. If you have any questions or suggestions regarding the accessibility of this site, please contact our web-developer, as we are continually striving to improve the experience for all visitors.
We have worked to make this website as accessible as possible for all audiences, including those with visual impairments and users with specific access requirements.
Instead of providing a separate version of the site we have chosen to produce one site which uses construction techniques that form 'best-practice' when creating accessible content. In addition we have used Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0. to ensure that this site is accessible to the widest possible audience.
Key steps in our approach include:
- The presentation is separate from structure
- All content is well structured and marked up in xhtml
- All style is defined using cascading stylesheets
- Using browser controls all text sizes can be controlled by the user.
- Link texts make sense when read out of context. Where links are not explicit title text has been used
- All form fields are correctly labelled and have a logical linear order
- The website content is device independent.
In addition to taking the above steps we have designed this site to support the following browsers, as well as all standards-compliant browsers:
- Mozilla Firefox
- Internet Explorer 5+ for Windows
- Opera 7
This site can be navgated using the following access keys.
- h - Home
- L - Links
- s - Sitemap
