How we tested this website

This website has been tested using manual and automated accessibility tests. Both types of testing are run against the W3C WAI Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1. Test failures are reported to our development team and the issues are worked through on a priority basis.

We carry out manual testing by selecting a representative sample of web and check that they are compliant with the Accessibility Guidelines. Our testers use the WAVE Chrome browser extension and the Microsoft Accessibility Insight Tool, both of which apply a range of checks to the page under test. Our testers also manually navigate around the pages and check that content is presented in a logical order. The last manual test took place on 02 March 2021.
