We have worked really hard to make this website as accessible as we can and to conform to Level AAA compliance as articulated by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). We have also used numerous tools to check for compliance and we have performed many manual checks. However, if we have forgotten about something please let us know and we will do our best to try to correct any shortcomings.
All of our web pages adhere to XHTML 1.0 Strict World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) standard.
The following accessibility features are implemented on this website for people who have difficulty in using pointing devices such as a mouse, are blind or with low vision.
Access keys enable users to navigate to major areas of the website by using the keyboard only. Access keys work by pressing ALT (Windows) or CTRL (Mac) and then the chosen access key (Internet Explorer users also need to press ENTER at the end; Firefox 2.x users need to press Shift+ALT+access key).
Due to conflicts that can occur between access key assignments and functions of different browsing software, this site doesn't have default access keys, but instead allows you to define your own access keys.
Our website will respond to your browser's settings. Depending on your browser type, do one of the following:
For those who have a scroll wheel with their mouse, holding down the Ctrl key and scrolling the wheel up or down will increase/decrease text size in all browsers.
For all forms on this website we provide a focus indication so that persons using the keyboard can easily notice that certain field or link has been selected.
