Language and Text
Our aim is that text should be legible and readable with good size and contrast. You can use the Ctrl key and the + (plus) key to increase the size of the text, and the Ctrl and the - (minus) key to decrease the size.
We try to use alternative text to describe images when the images provide extra information or context to text on the web page. Not all such images currently have alternative text, and we are going through the site rectifying this issue. We do not use alternative text for images that are design features on the website and do not impart information that can be taken from the text.
Your browser will support simple keyboard access on this website. For instance, you can use the Tab key to cycle between selectable things, and the Enter key to select them.
We have tried to make our website compatible with all browsers. However, if you are using an older browser, the website may not format correctly in which case it will not be as easy to use. In this case for this website and other websites your experience will be improved by downloading a newer version of a browser.
