All content images used in this site include alt text. Purely decorative graphics include empty alt text.
We strive to comply with the W3C WAI's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines and aim for our pages to conform to a minimum of Level A compliance. Wherever possible, level AA and AAA requirements are also met.
All pages use structured, semantic XHTML, relying entirely on CSS for presentation.
While we use Automated tests to test for accessibility, it is just one aspect of our testing procedure. Automated tests are not as reliable as expert evaluation.
The sitemap allows for site content to be found easily, by listing the main pages in the website.
