To help our visitors to find the information they are looking for quickly and easily we have made use of several accessibility features, all of which are listed below:
- Dyslexia Friendly View
- Resizable Text
- Image and Alt Tags
- Browser Compatibility
- Consistent Navigation
Our website has been designed to be bright, fun and easy to use but, if you would prefer, there are different styles you can view it through:
Dyslexia Friendly View
This view uses colours and styles in the main content box that are dyslexia friendly.
This view is to be used if you wish to print the information on the page.
Images and Alt Tags
Whenever images have been used within the design of the site “Alt” tags have been used. This will show describe what the image is, in case an image does not load, image options are switched off in your browser or you are using a screen reader.
We have used a text size that we feel is easy to use, but if you would like to increase or decrease it there is the option to do this using the text size icons.
This site has been tested with the following browsers for compatibility.
- Internet Explorer 6.0 & 7.0
- Firefox 22.214.171.124
- Opera 9.02
- Safari 2.0.3
Later versions of these browsers should continue to be compatible.
We have ensured our site conforms to W3C xhtml and css standards. This should make our site accessible across browsers which adhere to the same standards, and should make our pages more accessible to those using screen readers and similar devices.
Throughout the site we have tried to keep the navigation consistent. Certain pages are available from every single page on the website.
