Accessibility Declaration

This website has been written to conform with the level Double-A of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0, including all Priority 1 and Priority 2 checkpoints defined in the Guidelines. The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 explain how to make Web content accessible to people with disabilities. Conformance to these Guidelines will help make the Web more accessible to users with disabilities and will benefit all users.

The site may be navigated by using Access Keys as set out in the table below:

Simply press the relevant key whilst holding down the ALT key, then press the Enter key on the keyboard. For example, to go to the Home page, simply press P followed by the Enter Key.

To use an Access key you press it simultaneously with one or two other keys. These other keys are dependent on the browser * and system in use. They are:

Windows

  • Firefox 1 & 1.5    Alt + [access key]
  • Firefox 2 †     Shift + Alt + [access key]
  • Firefox 3     Shift + Alt + [access key] + Enter to activate the link
  • Safari 3     Accesskeys not supported
  • Google Chrome     Accesskeys do not seem to be supported
  • Internet Explorer 4 & above     Alt + [access key] (to focus the link) + Enter to activate the link
  • Mozilla     Alt + [access key]
  • Netscape 6 & above     Alt + [access key]
  • Opera 7 & above     Shift + Esc & release, followed by [access key]

* Please note some of these browsers have not been tested, and some browsers may not support access keys. However, sites that use access keys are still accessible in all browsers by using the Tab key regardless of whether access keys are supported (with the exception of Safari 3 for Windows which does not support the tab key or access keys).

† Some early versions of Firefox 2 did not allow the use of numbered access keys as used on this and many other web sites. However, the most recent versions of Firefox should work just fine using the key combination listed above. If you use an older version of Firefox, we encourage you to download the newest version of Firefox from Mozilla's official web site.
