Accessibility features in your Browser
The majority of the pages on our site are set up so that you can change the colours, font style and size of text on the page to suit your visual needs.
How you do it depends on the system and web browser you're using. This is how to change the text size in the most commonly used browsers:
Change text size via browser toolbar
- In Internet Explorer 7 , go to "Page" in the top bar, select "Text size" or "Text zoom" and choose the size you need.
- If you're using Netscape, Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer 4, 5 and 6, go to "View" in the top bar, select "Text Zoom" or "Text size" and choose the size you need.
- In Safari go to "View" in the top bar of the browser, then choose "Make text bigger" or "Make text smaller" in the dropdown menu.
Using your own style sheets:
You can apply your own style sheet onto this website by:
- Internet Explorer: Select Tools, then Internet Options, then Accessibility. Next click on any or all 3 checkboxes to ignore colours, font styles or font sizes. In the same window you can change your style sheet by clicking the checkbox that says, 'format document using my style sheet' then browse to your style sheet and click OK.
- In Netscape: Select Edit, then Preferences and then Appearance. You will be given the choice to specify your own colours and fonts.
- If you're using another browser not mentioned above, please check its "Help" facility to find out how to carry out similar actions.
Braille and Text to Speech
If you would like to view these pages in Braille or to hear them spoken, then you may be interested in the following service: Robobraille. The speech quality was not brilliant when I tried it, but this may be a useful service for some people.
The BBC have some very good webpages on how to improve access from your computer to any website - see http://www.bbc.co.uk/help/accessibility/. The tips range from activation of in-built Windows features to additional (often free) software.
There are many additional accessibility steps that we can implement, but much of it is a question of time. We are happy to implement more accessibility features - if they will be used. Therefore, please let the Webmaster know if you would find certain features of use (or if you have any problems using the current website).
