Accessibility guidelines

All pages of this website aim to conform to level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0. These guidelines are the internationally recognised benchmark for building accessible websites.

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines also makes web content more user friendly for all people.

This website has been built to comply with W3C standards for HTML and CSS. These technologies are relied upon throughout the site. The site displays correctly in all popular browsers, and degrades gracefully in older browsers.

In addition this website uses JavaScript and Flash. These technologies are not relied upon and the website works fairly well without them.
