We have strived to make this website as accessible as possible for as many people as possible, including those with visual impairments or disabilities. The following outlines the main accessibility measures that we implement site wide.
- Using a responsive layout, meaning that the site will automatically stretch and contract to adapt to your browser or viewing device
- Using an easy to read ‘web-safe’ font type, size and colour
- Using live text instead of graphics to convey information and reduce the download times of pages
- Using foreground and background colours that provide good contrast for easy legibility
- Using meaningful and descriptive ALT attributes with all images
- Using cascading style sheets to control visual appearance and layout
- Using top-of-the-page primary site navigation for ease of use
- Providing a sitemap that can be accessed from every page
- Providing a link to details of how to contact us for further information from every page
