We are making every effort to ensure that we don't exclude any users. For example:


- We use alternative text descriptions for all content images. Decorative graphics have null alternative attributes.
- URLs on the site are human friendly.
- We try to use clear and simple language.
- We have tested the colours we use in the design for contrast.
- The main text of our printed documents are available on the site, either as accessible HTML or in other formats such as PDF.


The Society's Inclusion & Diversity Advisory group, made up of representatives from different parts of the Society's activities, meets twice a year. It reviews the inclusion and diversity elements of the Society's activities and publications and reports to the Society's Council.
