Accessibility

Our aim is to make our website as accessible as possible to the widest range of people. This means considering the specific needs of not only those with visual or motor impairments, learning difficulties and other forms of disability, but also different browser technology and Internet connection speeds.

To this end, we have endeavoured to comply with the most widely accepted guidelines for the construction of accessible web sites specified by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

Their Website Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) define three levels of accessibility, each progressively more demanding. The most basic level of accessibility is Priority 1 (level A compliance) followed by Priority 2 and 3 (levels AA and AAA).

This site complies with all Priority 1 and 2 checkpoints and where possible Priority 3. We are aware however, that a number of the checkpoints are subjective and there may be instances where interpretation may vary.

Web Standards

This website has been designed to industry standards, using cascading stylesheets (CSS) and validate as per the HTML5 specification. You can find more information about HTML5 on the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) website.

Where possible WAI-ARIA roles have been used to help assistive technologies in interpreting the content of this website.
