Accessing this website

I am passionate about the accessibility of this website. It has been designed with a number of accessibility features.

In the right hand column you will see icons that will discuss my work in differnt mediums; audio, video and video that has no sound but features British Sign Language (BSL). These icons will appear only when these features are available on the page you are on.

play audio button Clicking this icon will play an audio clip.

video Clicking this icon will play an video clip.

bsl Clicking this icon will play an BSL video clip.

Clicking on these links will open the media file in a new pop-up window and they will automatically start playing.

All video clips are saved in the Quicktime format. You will need the FREE Quicktime 7 plug-in or later to view them.

To access the panoramic images you will need the free_Flash_player. If this is not already installed on your machine, i.e. you cannot see the scrolling panoramic images, it can be downloaded here.

Alternative text

Images on our website have alternative text attributes, often known as alt text. This means that when an image is used on a web page to convey information its content is also described in the alt text. This means that the image can be understood by text browsers and assistive technologies such as screen readers. If an image is used for simply decorative purposes, the text attribute for the image is left empty in line with accepted best practice.

Readable and resizable fonts and layout

The website uses font sizes that you can control using your web browser.

You can change the text size in Microsoft Internet Explorer by selecting View > Text size followed by your preferred text size from 'Smallest' to 'Largest'. The default setting is 'Medium'.

You can change the text size in Mozilla Firefox by selecting View > Text size followed by 'Increase' or 'Decrease'. To return the text size to its default setting, select 'Normal'.

The website's fonts have been chosen for their legibility on computer screens. The website's layout has been designed to stretch to fill the width of the browser, so that you can resize the browser to suit your own viewing preferences.
