AccessibilityGuidelines and information in relation to the accessibility of this website.
Web Accessibility Initiative
This website strives to achieve “Double-A” accessibility of the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0), employing best practice techniques where certain Priority 2 checkpoints have become outdated.
The WCAG 2.0 explains how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly for all people.
This site has been built using code compliant with W3C standards for xHTML and CSS. The site displays correctly in current browsers and is compatible with the majority of browsers released since 2002. It uses standards compliant xHTML/CSS code, meaning any future browsers should also display it correctly.
Whilst the website complies with known accessibility and usability guidelines, it is not always possible to do so to the letter of each checkpoint. Browsers and access technologies have outgrown many of the difficulties that once needed guidelines to overcome them, rendering some checkpoints obsolete.
In light of this, we are continually developing solutions that ensure the website conforms to the spirit of each checkpoint, bringing together a high standard of practical accessibility and usability throughout the website.
