Screen reader, voice browser and screen magnifier users

Navigation mechanisms have been designed to be accessible by both screen readers and voice browsers. In addition, skip links have been added to allow the user to by pass the navigation tools to the main content.

All images have a text equivalent in order to work with a voice browser.

Alternative mechanisms have been provided where JavaScript is used within the site.

Partially sighted users

The web site has a facility to change the font size of the text on all of the web pages of the site. See Guidance on how to change the style sheet.

Colour-blind users

Should you wish to change the colour of the text and the background you can introduce your own style sheet. Please follow the instructions in Guidance on how to change the style sheet.

Future updates will include a stylesheet switcher to address high contrasts.
