Technical information about this website's accessibility

This website is not compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard.  The non-accessible sections are listed below:


You will not be able to:


  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts

  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen

  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard

  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software

  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader

  • PDF files and other documents

Our PDF and Word documents do not meet accessibility standards, for example, they may not be structured so they are accessible to a screen reader.

Disproportionate burden

All of the above areas of non-compliance would be a disproportionate burden to fix.
