Some accessibility features of this website

Responsive Web Design

The design of this website will respond to the width of any screen, this means you can easily find and read what you’re looking for.

WAI-ARIA Landmark Roles

This website’s code will identify the different areas of each webpage (banner, search, navigation, and content information) for users with assistive technology.

High Contrast Between Text Colour and its Background

Colours must have sufficient contrast between text colour and its background. This includes text on images, icons, and buttons. Also colours used to convey information on diagrams, maps, and other types of images are distinguishable.

Keyboard Compatibility

All functionality is usable with your keyboard. Users can access and move between links, buttons, forms, and other controls using the Tab key and other keystrokes.

Large Links, Buttons, & Controls

The area for clicking and tapping are large enough for people to activate them. This includes links, buttons, checkboxes, and other controls. Small controls, and controls that are placed too close to each other, are difficult for many people to use. This is particularly relevant on mobile devices with small screens.

Understandable Content

Our website copy is readable and understandable and content appears and operates in a predictable way.
