Browsing the Site

We have designed this site with ease of access in mind. The various elements have been placed logically on the page as follows:

  • The site features a main horizontal navigational bar (in blue) featuring large buttons for access to the main sections
  • The very top horizonal bar features accessibility features
  • The body content of each page is displayed in the right portion of the page
  • The contact information and additional sections are listed at the bottom of each page


To improve the user experience and conform to Web Accessibility standards WAI AAA, the website includes the following accessiblity features:

  • Cross-browser compatible
  • XHTML strict mode
  • Dynamic font resizing (small, medium and large)
  • Printer friendly pages
  • Site map quickly lists all sections in the site for ease of access
  • All images contain textual descriptions
  • RSS feeds allow structured content from within the site to be fed elsewhere
  • Site is designed in high contrast to maximise readability, for example the main text is displayed in black, against a white background colour
  • Meta data has been optimised
  • Help page and feedback form (this section)
  • Keyboard shortcuts: the main areas of navigation can be accessed by using keyboard combinations, starting with 1 for Home, 2 for Information, etc. (e.g. on a PC, use ALT+1 to select 'Home')
