Color Contrast

This site has been designed in high contrast, using mostly light text on a dark background for the left- and right-navigational elements. Body text is displayed using dark text on a light-colored background.

Relative font sizes

Font sizes used for navigation, main content and right column content are relative to your browser settings. Although the default font sizes are easily read by the majority of users, you can enlarge the text if desired. For example, in Internet Explorer, navigate to View > Text Size, and select your preference. View more ways to control font size and font colors on the Web Accessibility Initiative website

Alternative text for images

Where appropriate, images have a text equivalent in the form of a description of the image. The alternative text can be read by assistive technologies.We have made a conscious effort to avoid using images with embedded text when possible.

Screen reader friendly document structure

CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) separates the content and structure of this website from its presentation and layout. Using semantic markup, the website is screen reader friendly, providing a much improved browsing experience for visually impaired users.

No new windows

Opening content in new windows and popup windows is confusing for users of non-visual browsers. For this reason, no content will open in new windows or popup windows unless stated specifically.
