Website Accessibility Features

Visual design

  • This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout.
  • This site uses only relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified "text size" option in visual browsers.
  • If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable.
  • Any information conveyed through the use of color is also available without color (i.e. text based).  

Text resizing

You can make the text larger or smaller on this site, or on any website you visit by either selecting the Text-resize style sheet controls or by changing the settings on your computer.

  • To change the default text size using the site style sheets simply select the small ‘A-’ or large ‘A+’ in the top right corner of the content area. This will automatically alter all text content within the website.


Throughout the website, every page has a print friendly icon. Simply select this icon whenever you wish to print a page of the website. Use the Print function of your browser to print the reformatted page. The Print function is usually located under the File menu of your browser window.

When a web page is printed, it will print the title of the page, the location of the page as well as the content. Navigation menus and site banners are automatically removed for your convenience to improve readability on paper.
