Downloadable files

Files have been made available to download in a variety of formats – the most common are Adobe Acrobat (.pdf), Microsoft Word (.doc and .docx) and Microsoft Excel (.xls and .xlsx). Reasonable adjustments have been made to ensure that digital publications available on our website are accessible. We have done this by creating tagged PDFs and images should have a caption or alt text.

You may need to download Adobe Reader to view files in PDF format or download Microsoft viewer software to view Word, Excel or PowerPoint files.

The latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader has incorporated accessibility features. For example, you can hear a PDF document read aloud or scroll a PDF document automatically. You can access these features in the Edit Preferences menu. Find out more about the free Adobe online conversion tool which converts the content of PDF files to a HTML or text which can be understood by most screen reader applications.

Browser compatibility

The site has been cross-platform and cross-browser tested and is currently compatible with modern browsers, such as Chrome and Microsoft Internet Explorer. You may experience issues with older browsers. If you experience any problems, please feel free to contact us.
