Accessibility Page

This website has been designed with accessibility in mind. It follows the accessibilityguidelines issued by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). We aim to meet Level AA of the W3C Web Accessibility Guidelines.

We have provided web accessibility information for key areas of our website:

  • Alternative text
  • Alternative formats
  • Links
  • Text size
  • Screen readers

Alternative text

We try to make sure that all images on this site have brief alternative text which, where appropriate, identifies an image or its function. This alternative text (alt-text) is generally only visible when the browser's automatic image loading feature is turned off, or when you rollover an image with your mouse.

Alternative Formats

We will consider all requests to provide documents in other formats including Braille, audio and large print. If you would like a document in an alternative format, please contact us:



All text links are written so that they make sense when read out of context.

Text size

The text on this website has been styled using a non-fixed value in a style sheet. This means that users can easily change the text size using their browser settings.

Screen readers

Most computers have accessibility software built into their operating systems and these usually include a screen reader and screen magnifier. To find out how to activate this software visit the BBC’s My Web My Way section.
