Website Accessibility

Tabbed Browsing

You can cycle through all links on the site by using the TAB key. To open a link which you have tabbed to, please press ENTER.

Images and Alt Tags

Where images have been used we have added ‘Alt’ and/or ‘Title’ tags. These are text alternatives so that you can still see what the image is meant to convey if it doesn’t load or if you have chosen to browse with the images switched off. The ‘Alt’ and ‘Title’ tags also help if you are using something like a screen reader to read the web page rather than view it.
