Instant Content Jumping
For users of screen readers we have added a 'Skip to content' link as the first link on every page of this website (hidden from view however read out by screen readers). This link will take your screen reader directly to the content of the page. This is useful to avoid having to listen to all navigation elements if you simply need to hear the page content. Note:
in most browsers you can press 'Alt + S' to access this function with your keyboard. You may also need to press the 'Enter' key after this to activate the skip to content function depending on the browser you are using.
You may use the keyboard to navigate the links on our website. By pressing the 'Tab' key repeatedly you will see a light coloured box appear around each link consecutively. Simply press the 'Tab' key to highlight your desired link followed by the 'Enter' key and your browser will open the corresponding page.
Alternate Image Text
All images utilise alternate text. This means users with screen readers can hear a description of the image (useful for images containing text). In addition in some browsers you may hold your mouse over an image to see the description contained within the page.
