About this website

This website was developed based on the advice of specialists, as well as user testing and external audits.

It has been tested using both Windows and Mac operating systems within Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox browsers.

You can send us feedback on the accessibility.

Exceptions

Some content may not be fully accessible. This includes:

  • some PDF documents and forms 
  • submissions by third parties

For assistance with any of the above, please contact us.

Hyperlinks

To help with scanning content or people using assistive technologies, we have provided meaningful hyperlink text.

The following best practice approach is taken for linking within our site:

  • all links to pages within the site, where the menu is still available, will open within the same window
  • all links to attachments or external sites will open into a new window.

This approach allows users to set their browser options to open in a new tab if this is preferred to opening in a new window.

Text resizing

Text on this site can be resized by:

  • using the zoom (up to 400 per cent) and increasing font options from your browser's menu
  • pressing the Ctrl key (Microsoft Windows) or the Apple key (Mac OS) on your keyboard and using the + or – key to zoom in and out
  • pressing Ctrl on your keyboard and scrolling with your mouse wheel.

Links to other websites

We take no responsibility for the accessibility levels of external websites linked to from this website.

Images

All images that are used to display a meaning will have alternative text available. Some browsers may also display a tooltip of this alternative text when the cursor hovers or focuses on the image.

Images that are used for decorative purposes only do not contain any alternative text.

Tables

Where possible tables are only used to display tabular information and are not used for formatting.

Row and column headings have been identified using HTML for use with assistive technologies.

On pages which display many publications, we have chosen to display these publications in a tabular format to allow ease of access to multiple formats.

Colour contrast

If you find certain text and background colour combinations difficult to read, you can change the text and background colours in your operating system or your browser to better suit your needs.
