Accessibility

Web Standards Compliance

This site has been created using valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional and CSS according to current W3C guidelines, and is aimed at users with a screen resolution of 800 x 600 pixels and above.

Our aim is to ensure that all pages meet the minimum Priority 1 checkpoints as dictated by the Web Accessibility Initiative's (WAI) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, although where possible we aim to implement Priority 3 checkpoints.

The checkpoints, however, cannot always be measured. They fall into 2 basic categories – automatic (which can be measured) and manual (which require a judgement call). All pages on this website meet the automatic checks to levels AA or AAA. Manual issues will be addressed as part of our ongoing development.
