Help, Access and site map
Access for those with disabilities
Except for some 'maintenance' pages not accessible by users, all pages contain a standard multi-button horizontal menu at the head of the page. This menu is the same on every page in which it appears; this is to help those who have difficulty navigating from page to page.
Selecting a main menu item either navigates directly to a target page (Contact, for example, takes you directly to the Contact Us page) or, where there are several further target pages, drop-down menus appear. Main menu items and drop-down menu items change (invert) colour when the user's mouse hovers over them to help those with visual impairments. All this is easier to try than to explain - please experiment and see for yourself!
Almost all body text is black on white. In the few instances where it isn't (in tables such as the site-map below, where successive rows are colour contrasted to make reading easier), the text-to-background colour and brightness contrast has been selected so as to be visible to those who have difficulty discriminating between colours. And apart from text within graphics, all main body text is resizable using your browser's View / Text Size feature. This is to assist those who have difficulty reading the standard print size (which is roughly 10 point - 0.7 em).
Graphics - including menu graphics - have alternative descriptive tags ('Alt attributes') which are readable by the text-to-voice readers used by those with visual impairments.
In the footer of most pages there is a link to this 'Help, Accessibility and Site-map' page and also to the 'Search this site' page which allows the site to be seached in Google style which should be familiar to most users.
