We aim for our website to be accessible to a wider range of people with disabilities, including blindness and low vision, deafness and hearing loss, learning disabilities, cognitive limitations, limited movement, speech disabilities, photosensitivity and combinations of these, and is extremely important in making your web content more usable.

  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • zoom in up to 300% without problems
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • watch all video content with closed caption subtitles
  • find good alternative text for all images used.
