Accessibility is the word used to describe whether a product (for example, a website, mobile site, digital TV interface or application) can be used by people of all abilities and disabilities.

For instance, a website is accessible if all people, including disabled and elderly people, can use it.

On a website, accessibility depends on how a person's disability affects the way they perceive information on a page and how they navigate within and between pages.

We are working hard to ensure that is as accessible as possible. We aim to meet the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 to Double-A compliance or above. Your feedback is really important to helping us do that. If you find any problems then please contact us and let us know.
