Accessibility Design Guidelines
Our 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 1024x768 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 referring to website accessibility standards.
  • If you have difficulty accessing the site or have any comments or feedback, please do not hesitate to contact us.
