Accessibility & Usability
We ensure our website and contents are accessible to a wide range of visitors including those with disabilities
For users with visual impairments, if using the latest browser versions with 'text-zoom', text-size can be increased by holding down 'Ctrl' key and scrolling (at the same time) the wheel of your mouse.
Our website can be navigated by using pre-defined 'access keys', i.e. keyboard shortcuts (see below for the list of key combinations). You can access the key navigational sections of this website without the need for a mouse by using access keys.

Text for images
We use alternative text for images - useful for users who either cannot see the image, or disable their images.
All our form elements have labels. You can use you keyboard to fill information rather then mouse by using the tab key.
Rather than using "Click here" for links, we make every effort to make the link more descriptive so you'll get a better idea of where the link will take you.
Proper heading in <h1> tags, help make it easy to understand the information being provide on a page.
Print option is available at the same location on all important pages so that these pages can be printed and read later.
Email to a friend
Email to a friend option is available at the same location on most important pages to help share information - a link of the current page can be emailed to your contact.
