We want everyone to be able to use our website regardless of their computer knowledge or disabilities. We have a responsibility under the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) to ensure our pages are accessible to all and we take this responsibility very seriously. Our aim is that the site should conform to the standards stipulated by the Web Accessibility Initiative and we are continually seeking to make improvements.
All font sizes are relative, with the exception of graphical text, and that text size can be increased or decreased by following these steps:
- For Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox: Use the View > Text Size options in the browser menu;
- For Apple Safari: Use the Safari > Preferences > Appearance options in the browser menu.
- For Google Chrome, click the Customize and control Google Chrome icon in the upper-right corner of the browser window. Increase or decrease the font size by clicking the + (plus) or – (minus)
In addition to the above, if you want to change your computer settings to make websites easier to use, these two websites offer helpful advice:
The charity AbilityNet will help you to customise your computer and the way you view websites, so you can get the most out of your computer.
In association with AbilityNet, the BBC also has a comprehensive site called My Web My Way, which provides further advice on how you can customise your computer settings.
If you come across a part of our site that is difficult to use or could be improved in terms of accessibility we apologise and would be very grateful if you could contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your feedback is an invaluable part of the process of improving our site.
