How accessible is the website?

The website template is compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard. Some content is partially compliant, due to the non-compliances listed below within the technical information about the accessibility of the site.

We’ve added buttons which assist in zooming, colour contract, layout and font adjustments on the top bar of the website.

In addition to most browsers supporting the Control key sizing, most popular browsers feature a text resizing tool in the toolbar.

The zoom tool is also available in the menu of various browsers as follows:

  • Internet Explorer  (PC): View > Text Size
  • Firefox > View > Zoom > Zoom Text Only > Zoom In or Out
  • Opera: View > Zoom
  • Mozilla: View > Text Zoom
  • Safari (Mac): View > Make Text Bigger
  • Internet Explorer (Mac): View > Text Zoom

Using most browsers’ built-in options you can adjust the size of text throughout this site (and any other sites which are built to allow resizing). See below for information on how to do this in specific web browsers.

We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible:

  • you cannot modify the line height
  • some older PDF documents are not fully accessible to screen reader software
  • some of our online forms are difficult to navigate using just a keyboard
