  • Navigate most of the website using just a keyboard

  • Navigate most of the website using speech recognition software

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

How accessible this website is.

  • We use CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) for all layouts.

  • No tables are used for layout purposes.

We know that some parts of this website are not fully accessible.
