Browser Accessibility Options:

Each browser has different methods for font size, formatting and screen colour options:

Device Accessibility Support:

Each device will have their own accessibility support:


We use header elements to structure the pages and to make information clearer. Headings highlight sections of text (a H1 starts the content area of each page for main titles and H2 tags are used for subtitles and so on).


You can navigate our site via the top navigation bar. Most browsers support jumping to specific links by typing keys defined on the website. You can navigate most of the website using the keyboard.

To Change the Window Size:

On the browser View menu select ‘Full screen’ or press ‘F11’.

Text Size

Some users might find the site easier to read by increasing the size at which the text is displayed. To do this you can adjust your browser’s settings by going to the View menu, then selecting either ‘text size’, ‘text zoom’ or ‘zoom’ and then increasing the size of the text.

To enlarge Texts and Images on a Website

On a PC:

  • Hold down the ‘Ctrl’ key and press ‘+’ to enlarge.
  • Hold down the ‘Ctrl’ key and press ‘-‘ to reduce.
  • To reset hold down ‘Ctrl’ and press ‘0’.

On an Apple Macintosh computer hold the ‘Cmd’ (Apple) key instead of ‘Ctrl’.

Alternately you can use the zoom options to make everything on a page larger or smaller.

  • To Zoom in you can use the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl and + [Plus] on Windows, Linux, and Chrome OS. On Mac, it is ⌘ [Command] and +.
  • To Zoom out you can use the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl and – [Minus] on Windows, Linux, and Chrome OS. On Mac, it is ⌘ [Command] and – [Minus].

You can change colours, contrast levels, fonts and zoom in and out on both mobile and desktop versions of the website.

To Zoom on a mobile phone, the user can scale the content by using the touchscreen with two fingers to expand and contract the image or by using Ctrl and + or Ctrl and -.


We are re-developing the website to be more accessible. In the meantime, you can find out how to change the colour combination on a website, in order to help you access the website.
