With the exception of decorative images, an image description is provided in the alt tag. Additional image information may also be provided on the page itself.
We try to ensure that link text makes sense out of context and that it accurately describes the pages it points to. You can use the tab key on your keyboard (as well as your mouse) to move from consecutive link to link.
Some of the information on our website is in Portable Document Format (PDF). You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to read PDF files. Adobe Acrobat Reader can be downloaded free of charge from the Adobe website. Later versions of this software provide a number of features that improve access for users. Every effort is taken to construct accessible PDF documents but where this is not possible, alternative arrangements for document conversion to other, more accessible, formats can be made.
