NSUN is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience with a range of technology and technological ability. We are keen increase the accessibility and usability of our website and in doing so we adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines.
Our website endeavours to conform to level Double-A of the World Wide Web Consortium W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and conformance with these guidelines helps make the web more user friendly for all people.
This site has been built using code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and CSS. The site displays correctly in current browsers and using standards compliant HTML/CSS code means any future browsers will also display it correctly.
Whilst we strive to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. We are continually seeking out solutions that will bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall web accessibility.
Should you experience any difficulty in accessing our website, or if you have any suggestions for improvements, we would be very grateful if you would contact us.
