Images and ALT text
The images that are used on the site are as small in size as possible, so that they do not cause pages to take a long time to load.
We have aimed to ensure that all images have appropriate ALT Text – this is so visually impaired web users, or those who choose not to have images displayed on the website can still find out what an image is meant to show.
We have set up the website in a way so it is ‘responsive’. This means it will resize and reorder various elements in each page to fit your screen (desktop, tablet or mobile) in the best possible way.
We will only use tables on the site when they are the most appropriate way of presenting content and will ensure that they are coded correctly so that people using assistive technologies such as screen readers can access them.
Text size and headings
We have set the majority of text on the website to be relative, so you can make it bigger or smaller if you need to.
You can increase or decrease the text size on the website (and also on any other websites you visit) through the settings on your browser.
You can also resize text on all browsers by pressing CTRL and rolling your mousewheel.
We use headings on our web pages. Not only do headings break up text and make it easier to read, but it is also useful to people using screen readers who will be able to easily navigate between headings.
A style sheet is what we use on this website to determine how it looks. You can turn off or replace the style sheet in most browsers; this removes background images and makes the text black on a white background.
