In order to make this site accessible to as many people as possible, it has been built to certain web standards to ensure that people with disabilities find this website easy to use. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has published Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) that help web developers make sites accessible. This site has been built with the aim to meet WCAG 2.0 AA standard, and we intend to have it independently tested.
Decorative images on the site may not have alternative text, but only if they do not carry any useful information, or duplicate nearby written text.
