Reaching a wider audience

We want our website to be accessible to as many people as possible. The following features improve navigation for screen reader users, keyboard navigation and users of text-only browsers.

Browsers

You can increase the size of the text on this site by adjusting your browser’s settings. If you use:

Microsoft Internet Explorer, go to the View menu, select Text Size and then choose Larger or Largest.

Netscape Navigator, go to the View menu and choose Increase Font until the text is the size you require.

Images

All content images used in this site include descriptive ALT attributes. Purely decorative graphics have empty ALT attributes.

Style sheets

This site uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) for visual layout. If your browser does not support style sheets, the use of structured semantic mark-up ensures that the content of each page is still readable and clearly structured.

Tables

We have avoided using tables for layout on this site except where absolutely necessary.
