We have tried to make our site as accessible as possible for all visitors. We have carried out user, browser and operating system testing, including accessibility testing with users that have disabilities.
Our goal for the website is that all pages should meet the AA standards of the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0.
We continue to try to improve the accessibility of the website, and your feedback is important to us for this.
Browsers and Operating Systems
Our website is designed to work best on the latest operating systems and browsers
We recommend Windows Vista and later with Google Chrome for optimal performance.
The website is also designed to work with Windows 7 and 8, and Mac OSX operating systems and Internet Explorer 9 and later, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
The website will work with Windows XP and Internet Explorers 7 and 8 but there are known issues that may impact on your experience and the usability in some areas.
PDF and Accessibility
Visually impaired users may have trouble reading PDF files with older screen reader software. Adobe recommend you always have the latest Adobe Reader software installed because it is "specifically designed to make it easier for people with disabilities to read PDF files, regardless of whether the files have been optimized for accessibility.".
