We want our website to be easy to use and as accessible as possible for everyone, using different types of computer systems and other devices.
An accessible website doesn’t exclude anyone because they have a visual impairment or another disability, because they are older or because they have a slow internet connection or lack of the latest software. It means that anyone can understand it, navigate around it and use its interactive services.
BrowseAloud - making websites talk
BrowseAloud reads web pages aloud for people who find it difficult to read online. By installing the free of charge BrowseAloud software onto your computer, it will read websites out to you and highlight words as they are read out.
We have subscribed to the BrowseAloud service, enabling our website to be 'speech enabled' - making it accessible to a greater number of people. You can access BrowseAloud by clicking on the icon at the bottom of every page on our website or by following the link below.
Our website can be translated into many different languages using the Google Translate function. You can access a variety of different language options by selecting your chosen language via the Google Translate icon at the bottom of every page on our website.
