​What we've done

  • All images have a written description (alternative text). This gives a meaningful explanation of what the image is about if it fails to load or you are using a screen reader.
  • We use headings to give structure to our pages so it is easier to navigate, especially if you are using a screen reader.
  • We try to write in plain English in a style that is straightforward and easy to understand. We also avoid using jargon.
  • We try to comply with Web Accessibility Initiative Guidelines (WAIG). Our website meets an AA rating where HTML is used.
