We are committed to making our website as accessible as possible to users with disabilities, including users who may be blind or partially sighted.

The design of our website includes a number of accessibility features including:

  • advice on browser accessibility options (this page)
  • a common design throughout rather than providing text only pages for disabled users, and allowing text sizes and colours to be changed to suit the users needs
  • ensuring that all images used in our site are given appropriate alternative text descriptions (‘ALT texts’).
  • compatibility with most screen reading software.

If you encounter any accessibility or technical problems when using this site, please Contact us.

You may request that we provide any publication in large print, audio, Braille, alternative format or in a different language and we will do our best to help.

Changing the text size

This site has been designed so you can increase the size of its text to make it easier to read. How you do this depends on your browser but the ‘Text size’ feature is usually listed under ‘View’ in the program’s menubar. When ‘Text size’ is selected a submenu usually appears with a list of the different size options.

Access keys

Access keys are keyboard shortcuts for accessing links and form fields on Web pages.

This site does not include access keys because there are potential conflicts with browser and assistive technology access keys which may confuse users.
