How the Site is built for Accessibility
Standards We have reviewed the guidelines and believe that our pages comply with all priority 1 and 2 guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. Whilst we would like to say this is categorically so it is a judgment call; many guidelines are intentionally vague and cannot be tested automatically. We have reviewed all the guidelines and believe that all these pages are in compliance. We have strived to make all pages on this site validate as XHTML 1.0 Strict
Layout The site uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to control all of the presentation and layout. Tables are only used for data presentment. As a result screen reader users can use the screen reader's navigation key to get around the site. If you are listening to the site, menus are grouped together in a more logical fashion.
Content The content has been written and formatted to make it accessible. For example:
