Sandstone Technology is committed to ensuring that our website is accessible to everyone, regardless of their abilities or the technology they use to access the site.

Our site is designed to comply with the Disability Discrimination Act (1995), as required by the Disability Rights Commission. This Act states unambiguously that private and public sector web sites must be accessible.

Access Keys

Access Keys provide a means of navigating a website via the keyboard. The keystrokes to invoke this behaviour vary depending on your Operating System (OS) and web browser, however the main browsers are listed below:

Internet Explorer 6 & 7 on Windows: ALT + [access key]

Firefox on Windows: ALT + SHIFT + [access key]

Font Resizing

This site supports manual resizing of screen fonts. Internet Explorer users can access this facility through the View > Text Size menu. Many other browsers support this feature by pressing CTRL and the + or – keys, however please refer to your browser vendors help and support for specific details.

Page Headings

The site makes use of a technique called sIFR, which utilises Flash and Javascript to deliver rich text headlines in our Temenos brand typeface. These headlines are accessible to all users regardless of whether or not such technologies are enabled. However, when manually resizing screen fonts, please refresh / reload your page to activate the resizing of these headlines.

Conformity Statement

This site is written in valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional and CSS1. It applies the principals of the W3C WAI Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (v1.0) for standards compliance and accessibility, by complying with all Priority 1, all Priority 2, and many Priority 3 checkpoints.

You can make a number of simple changes to your computer and your web browser than could greatly enhance the accessibility of this and any other websites you visit.
