- navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
- navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
- listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)
We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

Preparation of this accessibility statement
This statement was prepared on 3 December 2020. It was last reviewed on 24 June 2022.
This website was tested at all stages of its build and subjected to Pa11y testing throughout May 2022 and a full Digital Accessibility Centre(DAC) assessment on 14 June 2022.
This is an excerpt from the DAC report explaining their methodology:
“The service is tested by a team of experienced auditors and analysts, many of whom are disabled individuals and users of adaptive technology. The combination of subjective pan-disability user feedback and comprehensive technical auditing allows us to measure how the service performs technically and practically, thereby offering an essential added dimension to our test results that other methods of testing cannot provide.”
“Manual accessibility checking was conducted by a team of disabled individuals, using a range of adaptive technologies (hardware and software designed to facilitate the use of computers by people with disabilities).”
“Technical auditing involves the experienced application of a number of technical auditing and standards compliance assessment tools. This combined with an extensive knowledge of WCAG, its application and wider global practice provides the DAC website with further credibility and quality.”
