This page states our intention that our website is usable and accessible to all users and details some of the measures taken.
In developing our website, we have adopted the current guidelines from the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) and have tested it using W3C (TM) Markup Validation Service, and then manually addressed any important areas (as outlined in the initiative) in line with the spirit of the code.
Web design is an evolutionary process, so we are constantly reviewing each page and adding new areas. We will endeavour to make sure that each of these are compliant. If you find that a particular page does not comply to the spirit then please contact us.

Advice for JAWS users
If you use the JAWS screen reading software, and have version 8 or earlier, it is recommended that you navigate the submission pages ‘in context’, to ensure questions and answers do not become separated from each other.
