The EI is committed to providing a website that is accessible to everyone

This site aims to meet the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 to ensure that the website is as accessible as possible. These guidelines detail the methods that should be employed to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines also helps to make a site more user friendly for all users.

Tab key

You can use the Tab key on your keyboard to move between links on a page. Pressing the Tab key once highlights the next link, Shift+Tab highlights the previous link.


We try to write text for our links that is descriptive and makes sense out of context. Links to files (for example PDF files and Microsoft Word documents) always open in a new window.

Contrast and images

We have tried to use sufficient colour contrast on our website to ensure that our designs are colour compliant for the benefit of colour blind and partially sighted users. We also provide text alternatives for images.

Recommended browsers

We aim to support all major browsers available today. However, for the full experience, our website works best on Internet Explorer 9 onwards. If you are using a version earlier than Internet Explorer 9 we recommend that you upgrade to the latest version. You can download it from Download IE.If you are using Firefox, Chrome or Safari, these browsers now automatically update so you should be viewing our website on the latest version.

We intend to continue improving our accessibility, so if you have trouble using, please contact us and we will try to fix the problem.
