Accessibility is a term used to describe the degree to which a product or service is accessible by as many people as possible. 

In the context of the internet, this is particularly applicable for the visually impaired, as well as those with motor or cognitive disabilities.

There are many different tools and technologies used to assist in making websites more accessible. This website has been implemented with the latest web mark-up standards and reviewed for accessibility issues. Where possible, an accessible alternative has been provided for content.
