Accessibility Statement

Links

  • Many links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail, unless the
    text of the link already fully describes the target.
  • There are no “JavaScript” pseudo-links. All links can be followed in any browser,
    even if scripting is turned off.
  • Links to external sites open in new windows.
  • Wherever possible, links are written to make sense out of context. Many browsers
    (such as JAWS, Home Page Reader, Lynx, and Opera) can extract the list of links on a
    page and allow the user to browse the list, separately from the page.

Images

  • All content images used in this site include descriptive ALT attributes. Purely decorative graphics include null ALT attributes.
  • Complex images include LONGDESC attributes or inline descriptions to explain the
    significance of each image to non-visual readers.

Visual design

  • This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout.
  • This site uses only relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified “text size”
    option in visual browsers.
  • If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of
    each page is still readable.
  • Effort has always been taken to maintain high background-foreground contrast.

Forms

  • All forms follow a logical Tab sequence.
  • Labels are associated with fields using HTML label tags.

Scripting

  • This site makes use of scripting for visual effects. However, all content remains fully
    accessible if scripting is unavailable.
  • All pages use structured semantic mark-up. If you find any accessibility problems with our site, please contact us and we will do our best to fix them.

Disability Discrimination Act
