General information We've designed this site with accessibility in mind. Some of the general features include:
The use of clear, simple language which is easy to understand.
The use of common web conventions.
Avoiding the use of blinking or flickering elements.
The use of validated HTML and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)
Background, text and colour Careful use of text colours, size and background colours can help people with a range of visual impairments.
While we've used clear, legible font for all text and headings you can adjust sizing in your browser. For example, in the Firefox browser, select View, then Text Size, and then choose increase, or decrease.
Links and navigation Structuring a website so it is simple and streamlined to use helps to improve the experience for all. For example, placing page items in a logical order and making the website easy to navigate helps people with visual impairments, motor deficiencies and cognitive disabilities. We've made navigation links consistent between pages throughout the site.
