We’re working hard to ensure that as many people as possible can use our website, no matter what their ability. We’ve made every effort to make this website compatible with assistive technology.

The site should be usable by recent versions of assistive technologies including JAWS (Job Access With Speech), NVDA (Non Visual Desktop Access), ZoomText, and Dragon Naturally Speaking. It should also be usable by screen magnifiers and speech recognition software found on your operating system. We’ve also added digital inclusion software, Browsealoud, making our content more accessible with reading and translation support.

How to get the most accessible experience

We understand that many people will need to customise their experience to suit their individual needs. To help you get the most from your experience, we have provided a tool at the side of every page. This tool has options that allow you to change the size of the text, and change the colour scheme.

Make the text bigger

Reading text on a screen is not always easy for some people. The font size tool allows you to customise the size of the text to make it easier to read. Press the ‘increase text’ button to make the text bigger and the ‘decrease text’ to make it smaller. Press the reset button to change the text back to the default size.

You may also be able to use your browser to change the text size. Find out more about changing the text size in your browser.

Change the colours

Although we’ve tried to use colours that would make it easy to read, we know that some people have trouble with reading text on certain colours. The contrast tool lets you choose between three additional colour schemes that use high contrast colours. The high contrast, negative contrast and light background options might be more suitable if you have low vision. The negative contrast option might be easier to read if you are dyslexic.

You may also be able to use your browser to use your own colours. Find out more about using your own colours with your browser.
