In addition to main navigation accesskey shortcuts, this site also contains the following accessibility aids:

  • Each page has a 'skip navigation' link to take users directly to the main content, while avoiding the repeating navigation. This link is hidden from sighted users.
  • Navigation is repeated at the foot of each page.
  • All form fields have ACCESSKEY shortcuts, as indicated by the underlined characters.
  • All form fields use TABINDEX to control the correct tabbing order from one field to the next.
  • The pages use style sheets to control the design; when style sheets are not loaded, the page content is properly linear.
  • All graphics have ALT text where appropriate and LONGDESC where needed; a [D] link next to those images which benefit from a long description will take the visitor to the LONGDESC file (for those visitors whose browsers do not support the LONGDESC attribute). This link is hidden from sighted users.
  • The site avoids those HTML elements which reduced accessibility, such as using forms for layouts and deprecated tags.
