Accessibility

This out­lines how the web site can be made more acces­si­ble for users.

USING WEB TECHNOLOGIES

You may find mak­ing changes to your web brows­er set­tings help you use this web site. You can change the options in your brows­er to adjust the size of the text, the colour of the text and the colour of the back­ground. If you are using the lat­est ver­sion of Inter­net Explor­er you will be able to over­ride the colour scheme of this and many oth­er websites.

FILL­ING IN FORMS

When fill­ing in any online forms we would rec­om­mend the following:

  • Read all of the form care­ful­ly before attempt­ing to fill it in
  • When you do fill the form in you may find it more use­ful to turn Vir­tu­al PC Cur­sor off if you are using the screen­read­er JAWS ver­sion 3.3 or above
  • Once you have filled the form in, turn Vir­tu­al PC Cur­sor back on and check what you have entered — then sub­mit the form

CHANG­ING BROWS­ER SETTINGS

You may find it use­ful to change the default colours and fonts used on your com­put­er. The pro­ce­dure for doing this is dif­fer­ent for dif­fer­ent ver­sions of Win­dows and oth­er oper­at­ing sys­tems. You should there­fore con­sult your computer’s Help facil­i­ty for instruc­tions on doing this.
