Links

This website contains links to pages contained on external government and non-government websites (collectively "third party websites"). These third party websites are not owned or endorsed by us and the accessibility of these third party websites is independent of the accessibility of this website.

Navigation

  • A "Skip to content" link has been provided at the top of each page. Users using screen readers (screen magnifiers or speech browsers), using a small screen resolution or the keyboard, are able to go directly to the content.
  • If you are a keyboard user you can use the Tab key to move through the page navigation. We have applied a logical tab order to make it easier to navigate this website.
  • Navigation is not dependent upon the use of Javascript. Javascript can be turned off and users are still able to use the navigation menu.

Visual design and browser versions

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) have been used to create consistent visual layout within this website. This website will display correctly and functionally work in browsers which support CSS, including Internet Explorer 6 and 7, Firefox 1 and 2, Netscape 7 and 8, and Safari 1.

Images

Where images are used for navigation, or are intended to convey information, a description of the image has been provided within the alt tag of the image. However purely images used only for decoration have blank alt tags.

Headers

The pages in this website are structured using properly ordered headers.

This is done to aid legibility and to allow users to skim the main parts of the page. For instance some browsers can list all the headers on a page, or navigate directly to the next or previous header.
