There are two million people
with sight problems in the UK.
Good design can make a
website accessible to them.

We have followed guidelines based on the World Wide Web Consortium's (WC3) Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).

For users with impaired vision all text can be fully enlarged. Text-based links have been used, rather than graphic images in order that the user can still navigate the site web viewing it in enlarged format.

For people with colour vision problems all background colours were chosen to ensure the best possible contrast. Furthermore these background tints can be removed if necessary.

The layout of the site, and of each page within it, has been designed to a logical format. This means that people using speech synthesiser software can navigate more easily around the site and are presented with information in a logical order

Similarly, the design principles used helps users who cannot use a mouse to use their keyboard (or other specialist device) to ‘tab’ through each page and navigate each page in a logical manner.

A navigation bar at the top of each page means that users can see, at any point, exactly where they are within the site.

These are just a few of a series of guidelines that have been adhered to in the design of this site. For a more detailed breakdown, click on the link below to go directly to the Web Accessibility Initiative Website
