Accessibility on ADDRESS-2 site

This statement relates only to web pages with a web address beginning – the website’s main domain.

How accessible the website is

We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • Navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • Resize to the size of your window, and display a readable text size whichever device you are using
  • Zoom in up to 200% without the text spilling off the screen
  • Listen to most of the website using a screen reader
  • View the website in high colour contrast
