We want you to enjoy using our website, and to be able to access the information you need quickly and easily. With this in mind, we’re continually working to update our website to make it as accessible as possible to everyone who uses it.
Following the launch of our new website in 2018, we’re working towards achieving the AA accessibility standard, as laid out by W3C in their Web Accessibility Initiative. Achieving this standard would demonstrate that our website has a high level of accessibility for users.
We use PDF (Portable Document Format) documents on our website to make certain information available for you to download and view. PDFs are a common file format used on the internet. You will need the Adobe Acrobat reader in order to view them. If your computer doesn’t already have this installed you can download Acrobat Reader from the Adobe website.
The accessibility of PDFs has improved in recent years for those using assistive technologies such as screen readers, navigation through the keyboard and enhanced screen viewing. You can find information about using these features on the Adobe website.
For detailed documentation and step-by-step guides to help you customise your particular web browser and computer setup, read the W3C Better Web Browsing guide.
