Browser compatibility

This site has been built to work well in all current versions of the most popular browsers. It will work well in many less popular web browsers, and many older browsers too. It has been tested with a number of assistive technologies, such as Jaws Screen Reader.

Because we want the site to be accessible, and so that we can make full use of technical advances in Internet technologies, the site may not work perfectly in very old browsers, such as Netscape 4.

For this reason, if you have a very old browser, we recommend that you upgrade it.

Firefox can be downloaded here: www.mozilla-europe.org/en/firefox/

Google Chrome can be downloaded here: www.google.com/chrome

Microsoft's Internet Explorer can be found here: www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/downloads/default.mspx

Opera can be downloaded here: www.opera.com/download/?custom=yes

Safari (for Mac) is available here: www.apple.com/safari


This site uses Flash to add visual interest to several areas. If you can't see the Flash content of this website, you can download the latest Flash players (for PC and Mac) free at: www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/alternates

Video and audio

This site features a number of video and audio clips, particularly in the Showcase section. There are larger, higher quality clips available for visitors to the site who have a broadband Internet connection, and smaller, lower quality clips for visitors with a standard dial-up connection.

If you are having difficulties watching the video, or listening to the audio clips on the site, you may need to download some free software.

Windows media player is available (for PC and Mac) here: www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/

Real Player (for PC and Mac) is available here: www.real.com/freeplayer/?rppr=rnwk

PDF, RTF and Word documents

Many useful documents have been made available on this website. Most are available as PDF documents. If you are having problems viewing PDF documents, you may need to download Adobe's free Acrobat Reader. You can do so (for PC and Mac) at: www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html.

Specific information on PDFs and accessibility can be found at:

We have also included some Word and Rich Text documents on the site. You don't need expensive software to read these either. You can download the free Word Viewer at: www.microsoft.com/downloads (search for 'Word Viewer').
