Accessibility

We’ve tried hard to make this site accessible to wide range of visitors using a variety of devices for browsing. However the site is still young, and we would like to hear from you if you have any feedback or comments.

Design
The information within the site should be accessible and–at minimum–readable to all visitors. We have used various navigation elements to help with this, including breadcrumbs, drop down selectors and multiple ways to access content from splash pages within the site.

Build
The site has been constructed with modern browsers in mind, but still to standards and recommendations from the World Wide Web (W3C) group.

Currently the site meets WAI1 guidelines for accessibility. This includes things like adding labels to forms and ALT tags to describe images to aid impaired users. More information available here – www.w3.org/TR/WCAG10/

The site should still be navigable even with Javascript disabled.
