This website does not rely on the use of a mouse to navigate and is designed to be operable using a keyboard, switching device, joystick or gesture-recognition device. A logical tab order is used to step through the links on each page using TAB to move down and Shift TAB to move back up through the links.
Where appropriate we have also provided 'skip-links'. These links are invisible to sighted users unless accessed using the TAB key. Keyboard, screen reader and braille users can use these 'skip-links' to skip past repetitive content such as site navigation links at the start of a page. Pressing the TAB key will access the first 'skip-link' on the page; pressing ENTER key will then 'skip' to the content described in the link text.
We've tried to make text links as descriptive as possible, or they are written so as to make contextual sense. However, where additional information about a link might be useful, we've used 'title' attributes to describe the link in greater detail. This additional information is visible when the mouse cursor is held over the link or the link receives focus from an input device such as a keyboard. Users of assistive technology may also set screen reader options to take advantage of this feature.
For users using text-only browsers, or visual browsers with images disabled, all non-decorative images used in this website include a descriptive 'alt' attribute to provide a short text replacement for the image. Any images that are decorative and are not critical to site content have a null 'alt' attribute and should not add to screen reader "noise pollution".
If you have difficulty reading text because it's too small you can increase the default text size for your browser. In most modern browsers, simply holding down the CTRL key and pressing the + (PLUS sign) key will increase the default text size or magnify the page. Pressing the + (PLUS sign) key again will further increase the text size. For non-keyboard users and for more browser specific instructions, please select your browser from the following list:
