Access keys are:

Currently the site is written to adhere to XHTML 1 and CSS coding standards and users may resize text and select an alternative style sheet which is aimed at supporting dyslexia, being mainly blue on cream and fixed width.It also has a default font of Lexia to aid readability. This font may be downloaded here...
