Page structure: We use header elements to structure the pages and make the information clear

Style sheets: We use style sheets to keep font sizes consistent, with the exception of graphical text

Text: You can increase and decrease the size of text, to make it easier for you to read, by using the 'View' option in your browser

Images: We use 'Alt' tags on our images that describe what the image is if you can't see it

Colour: We avoid using colour exclusively to display information

Site map: We provide a site map so that you can easily see the structure of the website and how it fits together
