Tab-based navigation and skip to links

This website allows full tab-based navigation:

  • when you are on a menu item or hyperlink, press enter to activate
  • hold down shift and tab to reverse the tab cycle
  • at the top of each page there are options to skip to various areas of the page to assist users of screenreaders and users that are viewing the website zoomed in 

Text resizing

Text on this site can be resized by:

  • using the zoom and increase font options from your browser’s menu
  • press the Ctrl key (Microsoft Windows) or the Apple key (Mac OS) on your keyboard and use the + or – key to zoom in and out
  • press Ctrl on your keyboard and scroll with your mouse wheel

Hyperlinks

Wherever possible, hyperlinks contain descriptions of information found in the link’s destination.

All links open in the same window to improve usability for people with vision impairment, with the exception of links to documents, which open in a new window.

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

Document attachments

Where possible, pdf documents have also been provided in Microsoft Word format (.doc). In some cases we may not be able to provide Microsoft Word versions. For example, documents that have been produced by a third party such as submissions or scanned documents. In line with standard practice all document attachments will open into a new window. 

Contact us using the feedback form to request alternate document formats.
