In building our current website, we follow Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities and have three levels of accessibility (A, AA and AAA). We strive to achieve Level AA compliance.
We expect that all our users will be able to:
change colours, contrast levels and fonts
zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
listen to most of the website using a screen reader
There are some areas of our website that do not currently fully meet the Level AA criteria because of certain non-compliances and exemptions. We are in the process of conducting a full accessibility audit and we will update this page with the most up-to-date information.
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
