Keeping content accurate

We are continually reviewing our web pages and changing them to make sure they are accessible for all users. Our website is written in plain English and we try to use a written style that is straightforward and understandable.

We follow a list of accessibility guidelines when designing our website and content these include:

  • Maintain a standard layout and navigation system throughout
  • Allow visitors to resize all text
  • Use plain backgrounds to improve the readability of text
  • Use foreground and background colour combinations which have sufficient contrast and are not known to cause problems for sufferers of colour-blindness
  • Use alt tags on all images. These give a description of the image when the mouse pointer rolls over them.
  • We try to make all image titles meaningful
  • Design layouts to work well at a range of screen resolutions
  • Ensure all hyperlinks use descriptive and meaningful text, avoiding short-hand language like ‘click here’
  • Provide internal anchors for visitors using screen readers or similar technology
  • Website feedback
