Accessibility is very important to us and we have designed our website to be fully accessible.
User friendly design
We have designed our site in an easy and friendly way for users to navigate through. We have included our own guidelines which include:
- Using meaningful ALT text so there is a descriptive alternative for all images.
- Using descriptive hyperlink text.
- No use of frames, which are difficult for special browsers to display.
- Using an easy to read font type, size and colour.
- Using an easy-to-see web colour-scheme.
Navigating the Site
To navigate through this site, please use the left hand side bar menu to select the area of advice you are looking for. If you use a screen reader, it will read the menu to you and provide access to the tools on this page.
Customising Your Computer
- change how information is shown on your screen, to get more on, or to see content more clearly
- change colours and fonts, a good idea if you have a visual impairment and need more contrast
- adapt the mouse, for example, to slow it down, make the pointer bigger, or if you’re left-handed
- change a variety of keyboard settings, including the rate at which the cursor blinks
The W3 accessibility guidelines explain the reasons behind each guideline.
