Accessability for the visually impaired
Site structure & Standards
We proudly display the WC3 logo (at the base of each page) to show that this website is validated 100% compliant with HTML 4.01 Transitional and CSS standards. These standards recognize that this website has been properly designed for access by the widest range of internet browsers, and can also be accessed by people who are visually impaired.
Accessing the features
Read on to learn how you can access the inherent features in this website using your internet browser.
Body text and most other text on this website is set in relative sizes,
which means the user can increase and decrease text size as required.
eg: Your Web Browsers' File Menu "View > Text Size > Large" (or similar).
Links are self-describing for intuitive understanding when encountered out of context.
Many links have a title attribute which describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already fully describes the target.
Links leading to files that are not HTML documents such as PDF's, Word files etc, are noted via the link text and/or title attributes.
This site uses CSS (cascading style sheets) for visual layout. If your browser does not support CSS, the content of each page is still highly legible through being structured in a linear and hierarchical fashion.
All content images used in this site include descriptive ALT attributes, ( you can usually see these under normal circumstances by moving your mouse pointer over the image).
Purely decorative graphics include ALT attributes or are handled purely by CSS, thus not requiring descriptive ALT attributes at all.
This website is designed for effective use by all web browsers and devices. Enhancements have been made to this site that may provide additional functionality and refinement in newer browsers. If you would like to take advantage of this, please ensure you are using a modern browser, such as Mozilla, Opera 7 or Internet Explorer 6. Newer browsers are free and straightforward to install, and are typically 5 to 10 MB in size.
For more information on how to customise Internet Explorer browser, go to "Help > Internet options" in the pulldown menu. Similarly, for Netscape go to "Help > Preferences".
This site's language is defined as "en" to tell screen readers what language - English - this site is written in, so it can pronounce words properly when it reads them aloud.
