 This website has been designed with the following accessibility guidelines in mind:

  • The standard font used throughout the site has been chosen to be easily legible.
  • Wherever possible, we use live text instead of graphics to reduce the download time of pages and increase your control.
  • Our pages are designed to display without horizontal scrollbars when they are viewed at a screen resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels.
  • No information is exclusively conveyed using color. This doesn't mean that colors are not used to organize information; instead it means there are also other, non-color dependent ways of doing this.
  • All images and hyperlinks, where appropriate, have an alternative text attribute. This means when an image or hyperlink is conveying important information its content is described with an alternative text.
  • We have attempted specifically to comply with Section 508 of the Accessibility Design Guidelines referring to website accessibility standards.
