In our opinion this site has been designed to be as accessible as possible and compatible with the types of adaptive technology used by people with disabilities, including screen readers. As such visitors can control the size of the text and use 'access keys' on the keyboard rather than the mouse to navigate through the pages.
Access keys are keyboard shortcuts that replace the mouse for navigation. If your browser supports access keys, you can use the following:
1 - Home page
2 - What's new
3 - Site map
9 - Feedback form
0 - Access key details
