Text Size

In order to allow our visitors to read site content without straining their eyes, this site has been created using a flexible text size.
The way of increasing or decreasing the text size depends on the type of browser you are using.

  • Internet Explorer

    Select “View” from the menu bar then select “Text Size” and choose one of the options, from “largest” to “smallest”.

  • Mozilla/Firefox/Netscape

    Select “View” from the menu bar then select “increase text size” or “decrease text size”. Repeat until text
    is at a comfortable size. Alternatively, hold down the CTRL key and press + or -.

  • Opera

    Use Opera’s page zoom function instead of resizing the text – select “View” from the menu bar then select “Zoom” and choose a percentage.
    Alternatively, press the + or – keys on your number pad.

If you are using another browser, please consult the developer’s website.

Browsing Without Graphics or JavaScript

If you are using a PDA, phone, text-only browser or have graphics disabled
you can still view this site because the pages have been written to degrade gracefully if certain features are not available.
Whatever device you might be viewing the site with, you can always reach the content you want as quickly as possible.

The same goes for JavaScript – if you browse with JavaScript turned off you won’t see some of the extra bells and whistles on the site
but you will be able to view all of the content. The design may change, but content is king.

Site Map

At the bottom of each page of the site next to the Accessibility Statement link you will find the link to the
site map. This is essentially a flat view of the site
with all the links listed on one page.

Accesskeys

This site does not employ accesskeys as an extra means of navigating between pages. The reasons why are covered in the
following articles (all these links open external websites):

Until either the W3C changes the standard or browser makers agree on a
standard implementation of shortcut keys it’s safer to not use them.
