Header tags are used across the website to denote the content structure. This ensures that content is read in the correct order.
All of the images on this site contain descriptive alt tags. Alt tags describe the image in screen readers and other assistive technologies and are in main use when an image cannot be displayed. Images’ alt tags that bear no relation to the content are set to null to enable easy reading by all users.
The colours of text across the site have been used to offer enough contrast for easy reading by all users following the suggested levels set out by Hewlett Packard (HP).
