Site Accessibility Features

In keeping with our mission, our website is designed to be easily accessible to everyone.

This website complies with Level Triple-A of the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) guidelines published by the Worldwide Web Consortium (W3C).

This site is designed to be simple, practical and easy to use, in keeping with our principles. So you can alter the size of the text, or the colour of the background and the text, by changing your browser settings. In fact, there are many ways in which you can make exploring the web easier by changing the way your computer, keyboard, mouse and browser are set up. If you want to know more, have a look at the BBC website My Web My Way.

Nevertheless, if you have any difficulties with the accessibility of the site or suggestions for making it more accessible, we would be pleased to hear from you.

A note on Access Keys. We have chosen not to use Access Keys for this site because of the potential conflict with keyboard shortcuts already designated by assistive technologies, browsers and operating systems.
