Introduction is designed to conform to World Wide Web Consortium accessibility standards, but there are some things you can do to make using our site even easier to use:

Resizable text

By default, text is set at the smallest font size, but you can resize the text on all pages to one of two larger fonts, using the font buttons at the top right of the screen. Chose one of the three different-sized 'A's in the top hand corner to make the text larger.

Flexible width and scalable layout

You can drag the four edges of the website to display any size you want. The page content adjusts automatically to display correctly for the shape you choose

Customising your computer

AbilityNet and the BBC have developed some tutorials which tell you how to customise your computer to give you a better experience when using the web. For example, you can find out how to:

  • change how information is shown on your screen, to get more on, or to see content more clearly
  • change colours and fonts, a good idea if you have a visual impairment and need more contrast
  • adapt the mouse, for example, to slow it down, make the pointer bigger, or if you are left-handed
  • change a variety of keyboard settings, including the rate at which the cursor blinks.
