We aim to comply with the W3C Web Content Accessibility Priority Levels 1. The site's pages pass the Bobby automated testing at this level.
Most web browsers (although not all) support linking to specific pages by typing named access keys.
Windows users normally: press Alt + an access key or press Alt + Shift + an access key.
Macintosh users normally: press Control + an access key.
All pages on this site use the following access keys for common tasks:
- 0 - Accessibility page
- 1 - Home page
- 3 - Site Map page
- 4 - Search By Keyword
- S - Skip Navigation
Where search results are displayed on more than one page the following additional keys are available:
In some browsers (including IE) the access key may take you to the page's link rather than the page itself.
In this case press Enter when on the link.
The Skip Navigation access key goes straight to the page's main content, bypassing the navigation links. If there are any error or status messages it will position you at the begining of these.
If you would like to use a version of the site that makes less use of advanced browser facilities please select Accessibility Mode
To use the standard version of the site please change to Standard Mode
If you would like default help text (placeholder text) in empty edit boxes please select Placeholder Mode
To remove placeholder text select None Placeholder Mode
Although font size is automatically adjusted for screen resolution, this site does not use relative text sizing.
This means that in some browsers the font cannot be resized using the browser's text size facility.
If this causes you a problem we suggest you download an alternative browser that does not have this limitation.
For example Firefox
which is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux i686.
