Standards Compliance

  • All pages on this site follow a minimum “AA” guideline of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.

  • All pages on this site use structured semantic markup. H1 is used to mark up the site header information, H2-H4 tags are used for main content titles and sub-headings, H2-H3 tags for main navigation titles and sub-headings. For example, on this page, JAWS users can skip to the next section within the accessibility statement by pressing ALT+INSERT+3. Opera users can skip sections by using “S” and “W” to cycle forwards and backwards respectively through headings.

Structural Markup

Web pages on include 4 different areas:

  • A header image.
  • A top navigation bar with primary navigation links.
  • A main content area.
  • A footer, containing links to our contact information and to important documents for the site.

When CSS (Cascading Styles Sheet) are not applied to a document (or when using a screen reader), the 5 key areas are read in the above order.

Access Keys

This site does not use the accesskey attribute. Access keys often clash with keys set aside for use with other User Agents. (i.e. assistive technology). For this reason, we have decided to not set access keys.


  • Unless they are purely decorative items, all images used on this web site have suitable alt attributes.
  • Content should be usable/accessible with images “off” (disabled).


  • Some links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already fully describes the target.
  • Links are written to make sense out of context.
  • URLs are permanent whenever possible.


This website makes use of online forms. When they are implemented they use these accessibility methods:

  • Form controls are appropriately and explicitly labeled.
  • An alternate form of contact is always available: by phone, fax, or traditional mail.


  • Any client-side scripts used are non obtrusive.
  • The content of this web site is usable without JavaScript support. Some features, such as image sliders and eCommerce features, will not work as intended.

Visual Design

  • This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout.
  • If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable.
  • Any information conveyed through the use of color is also available without color (i.e. text based).
