This site has been enhanced with a number of accessibility feature to provide a satisfying experience for everyone.

Navigate with Access Keys

Windows users can access the main navigation items by pressing the ALT key on your keyboard together with one of the following numbers. On Macintosh press CTRL with one of the following numbers:

AccessKey +
1 = Home
2 = Skip to content
3 = About [org]
8 = Contact
9 = Help

Most browsers will take you straight to that page, but in Internet Explorer this only selects the link. Press ENTER on your keyboard to activate it.

Note: Access Keys only work in the latest browser versions (Internet Explorer 5+, Netscape 6+, Opera 5+, Mozilla, Firefox).

Take control of your browser

Don't like the colours on this site? Is the font size too large or too small? This website has been designed so that you can take control over how it is displayed...

Set up your browser

Detailed instructions on how to change colour and font settings, turn off graphics or apply your own custom made style sheet can be found here: Guide to Accessible Web Design - User Control.

Use the style switcher

You can select your preferred background colour and font size at the top of each page. Javascript and cookies have to be enabled in your browsers for this to work.


Mozilla/Firefox users can select a style directly from the browser menu: View > Page Style >

Website design

This site has been designed in compliance with the latest standards developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and using the latest accessibility techniques as recommended by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).

The layout techniques used here are not supported by older browsers such as Netscape 4. The content is still accessible, although in a linearized form [example]. If you want to enjoy this site in its full glory, we recommend upgrading to a modern browser (e.g. Mozilla Firefox).

The contents of this site should also be accessible in all user agents, including screenreaders and other assistive technology. Check the Accessibility section above for a list of Accesskeys and how to customize the look of the site to your liking.

Should you encounter any problems, please email us immediately at <>. Feedback is not only welcome but essential to improve the site.
