Accessibility Statement

This is the official accessibility statement for the Anglo American Books web site. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact us on

Access keys

Most browsers support jumping to specific links by typing keys defined on the web site. On Windows, you can press ALT + an access key; on Macintosh, you can press Control + an access key (depending on which browser you use). In some browsers, you may need to press ENTER to confirm your choice.

All Anglo American pages on this site define the access keys noted below. NOTE: Some project pages that do not have the standard set of links or follow the standard Anglo American page layout may not support the full set of access keys. This also applies to online user support guides that do not use the standard Anglo American layout. Also, individual service interfaces may not use access keys, or may use a different set of keys, though we will be trying to standardise the keys used.

Visual design

This site uses css for layout, however some pages may contain tables to assist in layout Where used solely for layout purposes, table headers are not used, however the 'summary' attribute is still used to expalin the contents of a table.

Style sheets are used to designate font size and colour, both in "ordinary" text and linked text, and background and other visual layout aspects of tables. If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable.
