We want this site to be accessible to all deaf and disabled people and users of assistive technologies.
- Our site has been tested to be accessible to people with a diverse range of hearing, movement, sight, and cognitive abilities.
- We have included accessibility tools to support our users. If you are using a desktop device please use the accessibility toolbar to make adjustments. – All our videos include Closed Captions, British Sign Language, and full written transcriptions.
- We hope to learn as much as we share – please let us know your comments and feedback on how we can grow and improve this site.
We have used accessibility consultants and user testing to make as many usability improvements as possible. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website.
We have added options on each page through our accessibility plugin below
For example, that means you should be able to:
- change colours, contrast levels and fonts
- zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
- navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
- navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
- listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)
- All audio-visual content is supported with descriptive text and British Sign Language translation.
We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
