text  back to top

The site is designed with an easy to see colour scheme, with all text displayed in an easy to read font type, size and colour.

All images and buttons have alternative 'alt' descriptions that can be read by screen readers.

Cascading style sheets (CSS) are used to set the colour and size of text on many of our pages. This formatting can be overridden:

• Internet Explorer

- select Tools, Internet Options, Accessibility, then click required options e.g. Ignore font sizes
- the settings in View - Text Size can now be used to adjust the size of text displayed

• Firefox

- select Tools, Options, Content, Fonts & Colours. Click Advanced or Colours and specify your text and colour preferences. Uncheck the 'Allow pages to choose their own font/colours...' checkbox.
- the settings in View, Text Size can also be used to adjust the size of the text displayed

A site map has been provided to make finding your way around easier.
