Accessibility

The PSE website has been designed with the following accessibility guidelines in mind:

  • Pages are designed so that they can be viewed at a screen resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels.
  • All pages use a cascading style sheet, to enhance consistency of style elements across the site.
  • All text uses relative font sizes. Text can be increased or decreased in size by using the appropriate option in your browser.
  • Graphical text is kept to a minimum.
  • All images have alternative text to aid text-only viewing or viewing on different devices, and ensure visibility of relevant graphics to search engines.
  • The use of colour to convey information is kept to a minimum.
  • All site links use text rather than graphic links.
  • A site map is available to provide information about the layout of the website.
  • All pages have been validated for a minimum of HTML 4.01 Transitional compliance using the validator at validator.w3.org.

We are continually making improvements to meet these guidelines.
