Accessibility statement

As Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web said, "The power of the Web is in its universality". We recognise the importance of providing a website that is accessible to everyone, regardless of disability.

Navigation shortcuts

There is a menu at the top of every page that allows you to jump directly to the most important parts of the site. Sighted people who use the keyboard to navigate will see these links appear on screen when using the Tab key to navigate through the page. When navigating using the keyboard, the element currently in focus is highlighted.

Semantic markup

All pages follow a logical document structure. Users of screen readers can get around pages quickly by moving between headings. Navigation menus are marked up as lists. Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is used to control layout and presentation.

Text size

You can change the text size of the website through your browser:

Images

All content images used in this site include descriptive alt text. Purely decorative images have empty alt text.

JavaScript

Dynamic HTML has been used sparingly, and designed according to the principle of graceful degradation. If JavaScript is unavailable, all website content will remain accessible.

As some screen readers execute JavaScript but cannot effectively describe dynamic page changes, we recommend that users of screen readers disable JavaScript in order to avoid confusion.

Standards compliance

We strive to comply with the W3C WAI's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. The Key has been independently reviewed and we are proud to have attained WAI-AA conformance. The independent accessibility review comprised automated tests, expert evaluation and testing by users with disabilities. See Caveats below. At the time of launch, all pages validated to XHTML 1.0 Transitional.

Caveats

  • We cannot guarantee the accessibility of external information linked to from this website
  • When we link to content in formats with reduced accessibility, for example Adobe PDF, Microsoft Word or PowerPoint documents, we indicate it up-front
  • As we are continuously updating our website, exceptions to the above accessibility standards may sometimes inadvertently be introduced. Please let us know if you have difficulty accessing any of our content
