Browsers

This website has been built to comply with accessibility guidelines. In order to do this, we’ve used techniques supported by modern browsers (such as Internet Explorer 8 or later, Safari, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome)

Modern browsers also make navigation faster and allow us to provide more advanced content and features. This means that, if you are using an older browser, you may be viewing our website in a more simplified form.

Navigation

The site has been designed to make it as easy and quick to navigate as possible.

Use the menu at the top of the web page to enter the main sections of the website. Once you are in a section, you can get to the more detailed information via the menu that appears just below the main menu.

Accessibility

We have built this website to meet W3C accessibility standards. These standards aim to give all users equal access to websites. You can find more about our approach on our Accessibility Page.

To make this website as easy as possible for you to read, you can control the size of the text and the contrast between the text and the background. We have also implemented access keys. These are keyboard shortcuts that you can use instead of a mouse.

Adobe PDF

Adobe PDF is a file format that saves existing documents with all their original formatting. This means that when you look at a PDF document you will see the formatting and layout that the author intended, even if you do not have the programme they were originally created in.

Some of the materials on this site are in Adobe PDF format. In order to view PDF documents, you will need to have the free Adobe Acrobat Reader software installed on your computer.

Accessible PDFs

We recommend that users download the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader to access Adobe PDF files. You may need to update this software from time to time.

Adobe Flash Player

The site may contain animations and enhanced navigation features, which are created in Flash format. If you wish to view them, you will need Adobe Flash Player. If you do not have Adobe Flash Player installed on your computer, you will automatically see alternative content for anything created in Flash.

Content feeds

What are content feeds?

Our content feeds use RSS (Really Simple Syndication) to enable you to subscribe to receive content from websites. If you have a reader on your computer you will not have to check individual websites for updates – the reader does it for you.

You can get a reader by downloading one to your computer. The simplest way is to sign up to a free web-based service such as Netvibes.
