We appreciate people have different preferences and abilities when using websites. We have tried to make the site easy to use and understand, no matter what technology or browsing method you are using. For example, you should be able to:
- change colours, contrast levels and fonts
- zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
- navigate the website using just a keyboard
- listen to most of the website using a screen reader.
We aim to conform to the to the ‘AA’ standard of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. This is not just a legal requirement in the European Union, but a best practice that will enable as many people as possible to use the site.
