We want everyone to be able to use our website regardless of their computer knowledge or disabilities. We have designed our website to be as accessible as possible, in accordance with guidelines laid down by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).
There are also some very simple services already built in to your computer that will help you make it easier to access the information you want on our website.
Help with seeing the page
You can easily make changes in your computer to help you see what’s written on the page more clearly.
Most internet browsers, such as Internet Explorer or Safari, allow you to force the text on a web page to be the size and colour you want. Many operating systems also come with a built-in screen magnifier that allows you to enlarge a portion of the page to several times the original size.
Help with your keyboard and mouse
Many people think they can’t use a computer because they can’t use a mouse, but it’s perfectly possible to do away with your mouse and use a keyboard instead.
If you can use a mouse, but find it difficult, there are ways to make your mouse easier to use.
Other help available
We’ve put together these pages to try to help solve some of the most common accessibility issues. If you have any issues that we can’t cover here, you could try other websites, which specialise in accessibility help, for further information.
If, after reading these guidelines, you still cannot use our website, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know.
