We acknowledge that we have a responsibility to make our website as accessible as possible.
Firstly, to accommodate the needs of the disabled by taking steps to ensure that, where possible, their experience of the website is able to match that of any other 'visitor' to these sites.
Secondly, to ensure that the presentation of materials is compatible with the computing resources used by its visitors.
In this context, our site will be built to interface with the leading browser tools and their content will be designed, built and presented with the goal of meeting the 'open' standards recommended by the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Accessibility Initiative (W3C/WIA).
This site has been tested in the latest Microsoft Internet Explorer (version 7), the latest Firefox browser (version 5), Netscape version 8 and Opera version 7. However, at this time, no testing has been completed on the Mac Operating system or browser (Safari) or mobile/pda/hand held platforms and we cannot be held responsible for any errors arising through the use of its sites in these environments.
If you find the text on these pages too large or small you can change the size to suit you by changing the settings of your browser in the options, preferences or view menu (depending on which browser you use).
i.e if you use Internet Explorer, go to the menu bar and select:
View > Text size>(and then choose the size that suits you)
This website will display best at 800 x 600 pixels or 1024 x 768 pixels.
You can change the settings in the control panel if you are a Windows user:
Start button > Settings > Control panel>Display>Settings
We appreciate there is much to learn about the good accessibility practices that need to apply to the management of websites. Furthermore, we acknowledge that we won't always get it right first time. We are, however, committed to ensuring that any issues or problems that do emerge are addressed promptly and effectively. This is where we need your help. If you do experience any difficulties with accessibility, please draw them to our attention by emailing us.
