Changing Text Sizes
This site uses CSS relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified ‘text size’ option in visual browsers. Changing the size of the text refers to making the text to appear smaller or bigger from its standard size. There are three options provided to you to set the size of the text that affect readability. These are:
- Largest: Displays information in the largest font size.
- Larger: Displays information in a font size larger than the standard font size.
- Medium: Displays information in a standard font size, which is the default size.
The website allows you to change the text size in three different ways, by clicking on the text size icons present at the top of each page and through Accessibility Options page.
Text size Icons
Following different options are provided in the form of icons which are available on the top of each page:
- Decrease text size: Allows to decrease the text size up to two levels
- Normal text size: Allows to set default text size
- Increase text size: Allows to increase the text size up to two levels
Images used in this site include a descriptive ‘ALT’ attribute. Those images which are purely decorative or used for layout include a null ‘ALT’ attribute.
Screen reader table functions within screen readers may be used on this site. The tables are properly coded to take advantage these functions.

Changing the contrast scheme refers to applying a suitable background and text color that ensures clear readability. There are two options provided to change the contrast scheme. These are:
High contrast: Applies black color as the background and suitable colors to the foreground text on the screen to improve readability
Standard contrast: applies white color as the background and black color to the foreground text to set the default contrast.
