Improving your accessibility

I hope you will be comfortable seeing and interacting with this Website as it appears.  However, if this is not the case and you need to make adjustments, you will find that there is much you can do to improve things on vision, sound - and manipulation of the keyboard.  This is done through changing settings in your operating system (e.g. Windows, Mac OS, Unix) and, or to your browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Netscape, Firefox, Opera).

For example if you have difficulty reading the text here, one simple thing you can right now is click on the View drop-down menu on your Internet Explorer browser, then click on Text Size and select Largest. This will expand the size of most of the text visible here.

Also, if you are using MS Internet Explorer V7 or later, you can enlarge the screen content by clicking on the magnifier or 'Change zoom level' button Change zoom level at bottom right of your screen.

I had intended to write more instructions on this page to help you achieve greater accessiblity, but then I came across the following wonderful BBC (UK) Web pages which provide all the help and more that you are likely to need.

Do explore the BBC Website at the following address:

I wish you every success in improving your enjoyment of using the Internet and programs in general by following the advice given at the BBC Website.  But see also the following UK links dealing with disability in general.
