Accessibility of this website

Accessibility Statement

At MCS, we're keen to ensure that this website is structured, coded and written in the most efficient and effective manner possible. We've coded this website with valid XHTML and valid CSS, and we've implemented special accessibility features including on/off toggling of Access Keys (to evade the common issue of Access Keys interfering with the shortcut keys of other assistive devices), a server-side text size adjustment tool (which functions even in browsers that have no support for client-side scripting such as Javascript), and Jump Links (enabling users with special accessibility needs to bypass site navigation by jumping to the main content of each page from the top, and to jump to the top of the page from the bottom).

There is some debate about whether Access Keys actually cause more harm than good by interfering with assistive devices, but very seldom will any website offer the best of both worlds. Access Keys on this website are supported but disabled by default, so as to satisfy the needs of Access Key users as well as users of alternate assistive technology who suffer from interference by Access Keys.

If you can think of any way in which we could further develop the accessibility of this website, please contact us with your feedback.

Using Access Keys

The implementation of Access Keys is a W3C recommendation, and many keyboard-only and non-visual web users rely on them as a method of navigating between pages.

Depending on your type of computer system, the procedure for utilising Access Keys to navigate this website (rather than using a mouse) can vary. Use the tables below to find out how to use Access Keys on your computer system to navigate this website.
