Accessibility

We continue to work towards full compliance of the Disability Discrimination Act. We are committed to a process of ongoing improvement to enable us to serve all of our customers equally. Therefore we have undertaken the following actions to ensure equal access to our services from our website:

Standard fonts are used throughout the site for easy legibility. Wherever possible, we use live text instead of graphics to increase your control.

No information is exclusively conveyed using colour, although colour is used to organise information, there are also other non-colour dependent ways of doing so.

The majority of our pages are designed so that they are without horizontal scrollbars when they are viewed at a screen resolution width of 955 pixels.

All images, where appropriate, have an alternative text attribute. If an image is used for decorative purposes only, the text attribute for the image will be left blank.

Where individual features make use of functions that do not comply with the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines we have made sure that there are alternative routes provided to the information.

A link to details of how to contact us for further information offline is provided from every page.

Where a process takes multiple steps to complete (for example, forms) an indication of where you are in the process and how far you have to go is provided.

Style of navigation remains consistent through the websites.

We have attempted to comply specifically with: Priority 1 guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines and, where possible, Priority 2 guidelines.
