  • Using an easy to read font type.
  • Ensuring suitable foreground and background colour contrast.
  • Using clear and simple grammar.
  • Simplifying tables and providing headings
  • Providing alternative text for all graphs, diagrams and images.
  • Providing simple and consistent site navigation.
  • Ensuring the target of each link is clearly defined.
  • Providing captions and transcripts for videos and live audio.
  • Using appropriate structural mark-up to maximise browser support.
