Accessibility Advice

Web Accessibility

We strive to provide a uniform online experience for all our guests – including those with sight, hearing, and other disabilities.

To ensure this, we are committed to complying with the Level AA success criteria of the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0).

Our site is designed and developed with these guidelines in mind. We test our websites to ensure that they are usable by guests who use assistive technology. While it is not always possible to do so to the letter of each checkpoint, we are continually developing solutions that conform to the spirit of each checkpoint, bringing together a high standard of practicality throughout the website.

If you have questions or would like to report an issue relating to the accessibility of this website, please contact us.

Areas Not Presently Meeting Accessibility Standards
