Wherever possible, we have adhered to usability standards to make our website accessible to the widest possible audience. This begins with the coding of the site and its structure, and runs through to our regularly updated news stories, blogs and research.
We ask our content editors and writers to keep up to date with guidelines, and to add content with usability in mind – to ensure that sentences are clear, and articles are readable. On-screen, line lengths are kept to a minimum of 15 words per line, with a minimum font size of 18pt. Text has a minimum contrast ratio of 4.5, and the site supports variable zoom on all pages.
Our content has been designed with accessibility tools in mind, and supports screen-readers. We also endeavour to add reasonable alt-text and meta tags to assist the process of reading and navigation.
We welcome feedback on the accessibility of our website. Please contact us if you have any suggestions.
