How accessible the website is

The majority of the website should be accessible, however the “Publications” page includes a number of videos which do not have captions, transcriptions or audio descriptions available.

Resizing text, changing colour contrasts and viewing in greyscale can be done using the accessibility buttons on the left-hand side.
