accessibility

PLR recognises the importance of providing a website that is accessible to all our users. Our accessibility standards are in place with the intention of making the content accessible to the widest range of visitors. This has been achieved by adhering to best practice such as compliance with W3C standards and by reference to the standards set out by the eGovernment Unit.

Accessibility on this website

All images used on this site include descriptive attributes. Purely decorative graphics include empty alt attributes.

We have checked the site's font and background colour combination against the different colour blindness conditions and ensured that all information is still clear.

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) are used to set the colour and size of the text within each page. The formatting can be overridden as follows:

in MS Explorer by selecting Tools/Internet Options/Accessibility

in Netscape/Firefox by selecting Edit/Preferences/Appearance/Fonts

alternatively you can select 'view' then 'text size' in your browser to adjust the size of the text
