Accessibility in web design means creating web pages that everyone can use. It's important to us because our users matter. With the latest technologies we deliver a great experience viewable in standards compliant browsers making content accessible to users regardless of disability or device.
Accessibility is the degree to which a product, device, service, or environment is available to as many people as possible.Cynthia Waddell.
All of our pages have been carefully crafted to ensure that our content is delivered to you in an accessible way. As part of our commitment to accessibility we check that every page in our site has valid HTML and CSS. We also take the time to consider font sizes, browsers, image alt attributes and more.
Not all web browsers were created equal. When viewing our website you may see slight differences between Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera and Internet Explorer. We spend a lot of time to make sure every browser has an optimal experience using a technique normally referred to as progressive enhancement. The practice of progressive enhancement
is an evolution of a previous web design strategy known as “graceful degradation”, wherein designers would create Web pages for the latest browsers that would also work well in older versions of browser software.
All of our images have an appropriate alt attribute providing an alternate text description of the image in question. This allows our content to be read in text-only browsers assisting people with visual impairments.
This site is structured with semantic HTML5 mark-up. Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) are used for visual layout. HTML5 is currently being developed by the industry. Because of this, we are constantly amending our HTML5 to reflect industry updates and to ensure that our sites mark-up remains valid.
This site uses relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified
text size option in browsers. If your browser or device does not support style sheets at all, the content of each page is still readable.
