Keyboard access

It should be possible to access all parts of the site (including forms) using just the keyboard. However, if you have any problems with this, do contact us and let us know. Please provide information about the web browser and operating system you are using – it will be a big help in fixing the problem!

Additionally, most browsers support jumping to specific links by typing keys defined on the web site. These are known as “access keys”.

They are activated in various ways depending on your browser and operating system.

Visual design

All parts of the site use Cascading Style Sheets for visual layout and design.

If your browser does not support stylesheets all pages should still be readable.

Text is sized relatively, so it’s possible to adjust the text size to your needs.
