Accessibility

HCS recognises the importance of providing a web site that is usable and accessible to as many people as possible.

Some people with disabilities find using the web difficult and many sites do not accommodate those with visual or other disabilities. While we know that it is impossible to design a site that everyone can use, however we have strived to design and build this site with accessibility in mind so that more people can access its content.

You can change the font size of any web page to your preference through your browser:

  • In Internet Explorer, select View, then Text Size, and then your preferred size.
  • In Firefox, select View, then Text Zoom or Zoom, and then your preferred option.
  • In Safari, select View, then your preferred option for making the text bigger or smaller.

Compliance to web standards
