Accessibility

The internet can be a great enabler and source of freedom and ability for disabled audiences. However, the usefulness of the internet to disabled users, and to aging users, depends on its accessibility.

For the visually impaired, deaf/hard of hearing people and those with motor or cognitive disabilities, we aim to ensure that their needs are addressed when viewing this web site.
