Accessibility features on the site include:

  • Validation of all XHTML, CSS and additional scripts
  • Screen reader ‘ready’ and compliant
  • All page source has been checked against Web Content Accessibility Guidelines compliance
  • Cascading style sheets used in favour of tables, for everything except explicit tabular data.
  • All content is still legible without the use of Cascading style sheets (CSS), but obviously does look the same visually.
  • Navigation of the site does not require any scripts.
  • Appropriate tagging for all images
  • Transcripts for video and Audio
  • A link to skip navigation. You can use this link to skip the navigation and jump straight to the content on any page in the site.
  • Text sizes are all relative. You can adjust the font size on the site to make it easier to view. With this in mind we have made available 2 buttons on the site interface to which will increase the font size which some users may find more comfortable to read.
  • Printer friendly: Our site prints in a way that the pages can be downloaded as support learning material ensure that the text and images are legible when printed out on a standard 300dpi printer using white A4 size paper without all the unnecessary website navigation trimmings as you find on the site.
