We want our website to be easy to use and as accessible as possible for everyone.
BrowseAloud™ - making websites talk
Adding Browsealoud™ to our website is reflective of our commitment to accessibility and inclusion. We want to ensure that everyone can access our information online, regardless of ability. Browsealoud™ helps us to achieve this.
BrowseAloud™ can be activated when using Google Chrome. This allows infomation to be provided in a range of additional ways to provide support with speech, reading and translation, features include:
Some visitors may find it necessary to increase or decrease the size of the text on our website. In the top right corner of every page on this website (next to the search bar) there is a text size selector which allows you to alter the size of text displayed between small, normal and large.
There are also controls in your web browser which will modify the text size. Most browsers allow you to resize text or change the magnification by holding down CTRL and + to increase size and CTRL and - to decrease size. CTRL and 0 resets the size back to normal. Mac users should replace CTRL with the Command key.
