We are committed to ensuring that our website meets high standards of accessibility and usability.
If you have a general problem with the size of text on websites (ours and others) there are several ways of increasing the size:
Change Operating System Preferences
You can change settings within Windows or Macintosh operating system to increase the size of text used – this makes all text on your computer larger (not just websites).
Change Browser Preferences
You can change settings within your browser to increase the default size of "normal" text – this has the effect of enlarging the text on all the websites that you visit (provided those websites have been built in an accessible way).
From the menu bar underneath the search field, select Page and point to Text size
Mozilla, Firefox and most other browsers (PC):
Hold down the CTRL key and press +
Decrease text size: Hold down the CTRL key and press –
Macintosh (Safari, Firefox and most other browsers):
Hold down the Command key and press +
Decrease text size: Hold down the Command key and press –
Zoom-in (Modern Browsers only)
You can use modern browsers to enlarge any web-page – the effect is to zoom-in to the page just like enlarging an image. All "modern" browsers support this feature: Mozilla, Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer 8+ (but unfortunately not Internet Explorer versions 6 or 7).
All pages are checked in accordance with Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) guidelines and adhere to/comply with these guidelines as far as possible. Please let us know if there is anything further that we can improve.
Menu Navigation (Access Keys)
You can navigate through the menu using the TAB key.
