Alternate Style

The website has been designed to work with assistive technologies. We recommend that your computer or device is setup to enhance your entire computer experience. In order to achieve this please use the BBC My Web website provides useful hints/tips/guides to assist you if you have difficulty using the internet or have any accessibility issues.

 

Images and Alt Tags

We have avoided using excessive graphics within the web site where possible to ensure quick download times and access to information which cannot be read when in image format.

Where images have been used we have added 'Alt' tags, these are text alternatives that allow you to see what the image is meant to convey. This will apply if the image doesn't load, if you are browsing with images switched off or if you are using a screen reader to give audio descriptions of the web page.

 

Browser Compatibility

This website has been designed to work with the following browsers. If you are experiencing issues with the website it is recommended that you install the latest version of the browser.

  • Internet Explorer
  • Firefox
  • Safari
  • Google Chrome

Later versions of these browsers should continue to be compatible.

 

Coding Standards

We have ensured our site conforms to W3C standards for xhtml and css. Adhering to these standards should make our site accessible across browsers which adhere to the same standards, and should make our pages more accessible to those using screen readers and similar devices.

 

Consistent Navigation

Throughout the site we have tried to keep the navigation consistent. Certain pages are available from every single page on the website. All image links have text alternatives.
