I have problems reading small text

To change your text size, you can usually use your web browser’s View menu. In Internet Explorer, for example, go to the View menu and select Text Size, and choose your preferred size from the list.

I have trouble reading text in the colours this web site uses

If you need to have different colours on all the web pages that you visit, you can set your browser to apply certain rules about colours and text sizes to all web pages you visit. In Internet Explorer, for example, select the Tools menu – Internet options. Now select the Colours and Fonts of your choice. Once you have done this, select the Accessibility button and check the boxes to ignore font sizes, styles and colours specified on web pages (it will then use your defaults instead).

I have difficulty using a mouse, so I use the keyboard to surf the web

This site is set up to be easy to get around using the keyboard. Use skip links and access keys to get straight to the content you want to read.

Skip links: As you use the Tab key to move from link to link, the second link that you will find on every page is called ‘Skip to main content’ (it appears right at the top of the page as you press the Tab key). Activate the link by pressing enter. The next press of the Tab key will now take you to the first link in the main section of the page, so you do not have to ‘Tab’ through all of the menu items on every page.

Access keys: Access keys enable you to jump directly to sections of the website. In Internet Explorer you activate them by holding down the Alt key and pressing the access key followed by Enter (in most other browsers you do not need to press enter). The access keys for this site are:

  • 0: Accessibility (this page)
  • 1: Skip to main content (see above)
  • 9: Contact us

I use screen reading software (e.g. JAWS)

This site is set up to be easy to get around using the keyboard. Use headings, links lists, skip links and access keys to get straight to the content you want to read.

Headings: All of our pages use headings to mark each of the sections of the page. Jumping from heading to heading will help you get aound the page quickly (JAWS users can list the headings on the page by pressing INSERT + F6).

Link lists: Every link on this site makes sense when read out of context (JAWS users can list the links on the page by pressing INSERT + F7).

Skip links: As you move from link to link, the second link that you will find on every page is called ‘Skip to main content’. Activate the link by pressing enter. If you read on from here you will have skipped past the menu items and just hear the main content of the page.

Access keys: Access keys enable you to jump directly to sections of the website. In Internet Explorer you activate them by holding down the Alt key and pressing the access key followed by Enter (in most other browsers you do not need to press enter). The access keys for this site are:

  • 0: Accessibility (this page)
  • 1: Skip to main content (see above)
