Accessibility is key to the enjoyment and usefulness of our website.
Our site meets the WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative) standard. You can find out more about this on the WAI website.
To make the site easier for people with visual impairments and other disabilities to use, we have also added extra features, including:
Text size options
Using the text size slider at the top of each page, you can select the text size that’s right for you.
Text only option
Using the Text Only icon at the top of each page, you can switch the screen to display a text only version of the page.
Colour display options
Using the ‘A’ icons at the top of each page, you can switch the screen to display black text on white background, black text on a yellow background or white text on a black background.
Descriptive text on hyperlinks and images
Each image and hyperlink is descriptively titled and is compatible with JAWS and ZoomText.
Screen reader friendly navigation
If you are using a screen reader like JAWS or ZoomText, the screen reader will read the menu and content of each page.
Built with CSS (cascading style sheets)
This makes it far more flexible and accessible than sites that have been built with ‘frames’, that some browsers can’t support.
Simple web copy
We try and keep our content short and simple. Of course, if you do want more information we’ll be happy to help – get in touch!
We use downloadable Word files documents and we also include PDF versions too. To access a PDF you need to install a free copy of Adobe Acrobat Reader. If you have a visual impairment, you can also visit Adobe’s accessibility website for additional help and features.
