This website has been designed to be accessible to all web users, irrespective of individual abilities and browser type. This statement gives information about accessibility features, and conformance to industry standards.
The site has been coded to W3C standards, and conforms to level ‘AA’ standard of the Website Accessibility Initiative (WAI) guidelines, published in 1999 by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
Images on our website have alternative text attributes, often known as alt text. This means that when an image is used on a web page to convey information its content is also described in the alt text. This means that the image can be understood by text browsers and assistive technologies such as screen readers. If an image is used for simply decorative purposes, the text attribute for the image is left empty in line with accepted best practice.
Our website will be tested on a regular basis using a combination of automated (Bobby testing) tools to identify potential problem areas and manual testing to ensure we meet the spirit as well as the letter of the W3C’s accessibility guidelines.
We won’t always get it right, but we are committed to addressing any accessibility issues promptly. If you experience any difficulties in accessing our website, or have trouble using any aspect of the website, we would like you to let us know. Contact us and let us know your experience.
