Our website and the information on it is designed to be as accessible and usable as possible. We want everybody to be able to find what they need, regardless of any disability or impairment.

To achieve this our webpages are designed to work with a range of assistive technologies. We also test that our website works with recent versions of all the ‘major’ web browsers: smartphone and tablet devices, Internet Explorer (from IE version 7 and upwards), Firefox, Opera, Safari and Chrome.

Help is at hand

If you are experiencing difficulties using our website, or if you feel we could improve anything, please contact We will do our best to help. The BBC’s My Web My Way website provides information on configuring your computer or browser to make the web more accessible for you.


We are working to meet the AA standard of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0).

The guidelines are designed to help make content accessible to a wide range of people with disabilities, but following them often makes content more usable to all users.


To meet the WCAG standard we do our best to produce content that is written in clear, semantic HTML5.  We use CSS and JavaScript where necessary to control presentation and behaviour respectively, we recommend that you have this enabled on your browser to get the most from the website.
