We have tried to use combinations of colours and font size that
provide sufficient contrast to make our pages easily readable.
The pages have been coded in such a way that it should be
possible for you to increase or decrease the size of the text using
built-in controls on your browser.
Some of the header graphic's may not change in size, but you
should be able to access alternative versions by hovering your
mouse over them, to reveal a pop-up in Internet Explorer, or by
right-clicking on them with your mouse and selecting Properties in
most other browsers.
You can change the text size by selecting one of the 'A' text
size options on the home page.
Alternatively, you can increase the size of the text on our
webpages by selecting View in your browser menu, then 'select text
size/larger' or 'increase font'.
You can also change text size by scrolling across the screen
with the wheel of your mouse, whilst holding down the control
It may be useful for you to be able to change the colours or
increase contrast, if you have poor vision.
- To ignore font and background colours choose the Internet
options from the Tools menu at the top of the browser window.
- On the General tab of the window that appears, click the
Accessibility button. This takes you to a menu where you can choose
to ignore the way the page is formatted.
- Then return to the Internet options menu, and use the Colours
and Fonts buttons to set your preferences.
All non-decorative images will have 'alt' text descriptions -
this is what screen readers will read, and if you hover the cursor
over an image, the description will become visible.
