This site is built with accessibility in mind. We follow the industry standard W3C’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines so that our site is available to as wide a range of people as possible.
We’ve followed the current best practice which means the site will work on modern web browsers. We use the same browser support approach as Google: the latest major browser version plus the previous version. If you have an older browser the site should still work but may not look as it is designed to be.
The pages of this site are made in a semantic way, that means the page structure is clear even when styling is turned off. We’ve used relative sizes for text so you can easily make the text larger or smaller using your browser’s zoom options (usually under the ‘View’ menu). We’ve used techniques to ensure that the site will work even if you don’t have the latest technologies.
All images should have alternative text so that if you turn off images or have a spoken browser, you’ll still be able to read the content.
The BBC’s My Web My Way website is an excellent resource with lots of accessibility tips on how to get the most out of your web browser.
