Our website is built using a content management system and style sheets, this allows users to adjust the appearance of the page to suit their needs.
Our content has been written in line with our editorial guidelines and we make every effort to ensure it uses language appropriate to the subject matter. We have taken care to ensure content is written and produced with clear sub-headings, contextual links, links, to clearly signposted content on each web page.
Most modern browsers allow you to control the way pages are displayed and some will let you define a 'user style sheet' to have even more control over the way pages are displayed. The text size can be changed by altering the browser settings, this is usually done under ‘View > Text Size’.
All the images have descriptions applied to describe what is on screen for audiences using assistive software.
