We have tried to make this web site as accessible as possible for all users. If you experience any difficulties please contact us and we'll endeavour to amend the site. Below are some guides provided by the BBC which we find helpful.
- For people who can't see very well: the colours and the contrast between colours; the size of text; the choice of fonts
- For people who are blind: how a screenreader interprets the elements on a page (for example, alt tags for images, and title tags for links); the inclusion of audio description for video content
- For people who can't hear very well: how any audio content is represented graphically (for example, including subtitles or signing on video content)
- For people who find a keyboard or mouse hard to use: the ease with which someone can navigate to parts of the page (for instance, by tabbing); auto-completion of forms
- For people who find words difficult: the length of sentences and paragraphs; the complexity of the vocabulary; the choice of fonts and size of text; the availability of spelling checkers and word prediction; the opportunity to have text read out loud
