Alternative text

All images on this website are accompanied by a brief alternative text which, where appropriate, identifies an image or its function. This alternative text (“alt-text”) is generally only visible when the browser’s automatic image loading feature is turned off.


All text links are written so that they make sense when read out of context.


Documents on this website are provided in a variety of formats. The most common are Adobe Acrobat PDF (PDF) and Microsoft Word (MS Word). Most computers already have the software to open these document formats.

Most PDF files on this website allow basic accessibility. Simple PDFs should not represent an accessibility problem.

If you are having trouble reading a PDF document on this website, Adobe offers a free online tool for converting PDF documents to HTML or text.
