This site has been designed to allow basic accessibility features. Details of these features are explained below.

Text Size

The text size is set to a moderate size which is neither too large nor too small, however some users may want to increase the size of the text. To change the size of text, please use the facility of your Browser which allows you to adjust the text size.

For 'Internet Explorer' users: Menu > View > Text Size > Larger | Largest (The option to reduce the text size is here also.)

For 'Firefox' users: Menu > View > Text Size > Increase (The option to reduce the text size is here also.)

Users of all other Browsers should consult the Browser documentation/help to determine the way to change the text size for that particular Browser.

No Graphics

An alternate stylesheet is incorporated to allow you to switch to a "Text Only" mode to view a page. This stylesheet is activated when you use your Browser to change the stylesheet being used. Please refer to your Browser's documentation/help for details of how to do this.
