We have used images throughout this web site to add interest and provide variety. These images have been kept as small as possible and should load quickly.
Each image is accompanied by an Alternative Text or "ALT" tag which provides a description of an image or a function. ALT tags are accessed by placing your mouse over the image.
Some of the pages on this web site have been created in Adobe Acrobat PDF (Portable Format Document) format. To view these documents you will need to download Acrobat Reader. You can get this from Adobe's web site.
PDF files cannot easily be read by access technology. Adobe have a web site which provides tools to help make PDF files more accessible to the visually impaired. These tools convert Adobe PDF documents into HTML or ASCII text which can then be read by a number of common screen reading programs that synthesize text as audible speech. The address for this site is http://access.adobe.com.
