We worked to make this website more accessible to everyone, including people with visual, motor or cognitive disabilities.
The following are some of the guidelines we adopted to make this website easier for you to use.
- All links are text-based. If images are used for any links, the text is kept within the code so they are still text-friendly for screen readers, text-based browsers or users who browse with styles off.
- All link rollovers are high-contrast so they are easily distinguished from regular text and headlines that are not clickable.
- Link content text is contextual when possible to make navigation easier for screen readers.
- Text alternatives are provided for all images through <alt> and/or <title> tags, to enable screen readers and users who browse with images off.
- Tab indexing is used so users can move through a form using the tab function on their keyboard.
- Label tags are used to enable screen readers and make completing form fields easier.
- Forms are more forgiving, with easy-to-understand error messaging so users know what to do next.
- Relative font sizing is used rather than fixed font sizing so users can adjust text size.
- A6 A5 icons are used on every page so users can adjust text size.
- All pages are optimised for printing.
- All code is HTML5, CSS3, WAI-ARIA landmarks standards compliant, well structured, and well crafted.
- Presentation is separate from structure.
- Website content is device independent.
We support all standards-compliant browsers:
- Internet Explorer 7.0 and higher
- Mozilla Firefox 3.6 and higher
- Chrome 12 and higher
- Safari 5.0 and higher
- Opera 11 and higher
