Standards Compliance
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is an organisation that employs experts who know how to make websites more accessible or easier to use. The W3C experts have written a number of standards or guides to help website developers ensure that the sites they are building are accessible to as many people as possible.
This site has been tested against W3C compliance and the majority of pages meet AA standard, complying with all priority 1 and 2 guidelines of the W3C web content accessibility guidelines.
