We aim to make our websites accessible to the widest possible audience. This means, for example, that you should be able to:
change colours, contrast levels, and fonts
zoom in up to 300% with text staying visible on the screen, and most images scaling without resolution loss
navigate most of the website using a keyboard
navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
read most of the website using a screen reader, including the latest versions of JAWS, NVDA, and VoiceOver
read most of the website on devices without a screen, like a braille computer
We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
Some of our content is technical, and we use technical terms where there is no easier wording we could use without changing what the text means.
If you have a disability then AbilityNet has advice to help you make your device easier to use.
