We have endeavoured to make all content on this site accessibile where possible. When this has not been possible we have provided textual transcripts of the content.
Below are some of the accessibility features that are available on this site:
- This website is built using Extensible Hypertext Markup Language (XHTML) and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)
As far as possible, we have tried to ensure that:
- All pages on this site comply with all priority 2 guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
- All pages on this site use structured semantic markup.
Text can resized using your built-in browser controls.
For more information on customising this site please see the how to guides on the BBC: My Web My Way website.
If you are using a screen reader or speaking browser, we have special links ‘skip to content’ inks on every page to help you jump to the main content. These are often called ‘skip links’.
These menus will be read out to you. If you are not using assistive software, you will not see these links.
