We endeavour to make sure that every page complies with the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), as part its Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI). This site has been built to achieve Priority Level 1 checkpoints.

- If we were to include movie clips or video streaming we would also provide time-indexed subtitles.
