The Library and Knowledge Service is committed to ensuring that this website is accessible to as many people as possible. Accessibility guidelines, Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, have been an integral part of the design and development process from the outset. Pages within the website are built inline with HTML 5 and the Style Sheets used conform to CSS 3. We operate a system of continuous improvement to ensure the guidelines are met.

We have taken all steps possible to make sure this web site is accessible to all. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • use your web browser to change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen

  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)
  • access the website using a mobile or tablet.


On sections that don’t provide technical information, we’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
