Additional accessibility considerations

Whilst in our native state the website doesn’t meet the ideal guidelines for contrast ratio we have gone above and beyond with a range of user-specific accessibility tools accessed from the right of the screen by selecting the accessibility icon. Within this menu, you can alter the contrast ratio, select a white or grey site experience, alter fonts, font sizes, and more to ensure a usable experience with our website. 

We are always continually working to ensure all our images have alt attributes that clearly explain them for screen readers.
