1. Standards compliance
Many Internet users with disabilities find websites difficult or even impossible to use simply because of the way they are designed. This website has been designed to be as accessible as possible and to be compatible with the types of adaptive technology used by people with disabilities, including screen readers.
As such visitors can control the size of the text and even use 'access keys' on the keyboard rather than the mouse to navigate through the pages.
All web pages produced for the Travel & General website are written to the XHTML 1.0 standard, use Cascading Style Sheets for presentation and aim to meet the double "AA" conformance level of the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) Guidelines. This means that the Travel & General website can be viewed in all modern browsers, regardless of platform or device.
Some older browsers (e.g. Internet Explorer 4 and Netscape 4) do not comply with these web standards. As a result, a minority of our visitors, who still use these browsers, will not experience the site as we have intended. They will be able to read the pages and navigate the site, but the site will look basic in comparison.
2. How to change the text size of this website?
If you are using Internet Explorer: to increase or decrease the text size, use the 'Text Size' setting in the View menu (at the top of the screen). The default setting is Medium. In browsers other than Internet Explorer, there will be a similar setting. For example, in Netscape versions 6 and above the option is called 'Text Zoom'.
