What is accessibility?

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has produced the Website Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0) (opens in a new tab) to assist website designers, developers and administrators in producing accessible pages and content. There are three levels of accessibility compliance; Level A, AA and AAA.

Accessibility features

The accessibility features currently available include:

  • increasing or decreasing the text size (via the users' browser)
  • 'skip to' links and a logical tab order to navigate using assistive technologies
  • printer-friendly content

    Your Internet browser has the ability to make the text larger or smaller on this site (or on any website you visit) by changing the settings on your computer.

    To check which Internet browser is installed on your machine:

    • open your Internet browser
    • select "Help" from the top menu of your browser
