We hope that you're not having any difficulty using these pages - we've used a bigger type size here to make it easier to read.

However, if you have difficulty viewing the rest of our website, there are things you can do to help.

You can change some of the options in your Internet browser (at the top of this window), & using the latest version of Netscape or Internet Explorer you will be able to:

  • Alter the size & colour of most text - but not images.
  • Alter the background colour - black text on a yellow background gives the most contrast.
  • Alter the line length, by changing the size & shape of your browser window.
  • Override the colour schemes of this website & others with your preferred settings.

See below for a step by step guide on changing your browser settings.

All our suggestions to improve the accessibility of web pages will apply to every site you visit. Please note that they won't affect images on the screen.

 

Microsoft Internet Explorer

To apply permanently the font & colour changes below:

  • On the View / Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  • On the General tab, select Accessibility.
  • Click the three boxes to show ticks.

Changing the font

  • Using a sans serif font (such as Arial), rather than a serif font (such as Times New Roman) can make text easier to read.
  • On the View / Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  • On the General tab, click Fonts.
  • In the Proportional & Fixed-width font lists, select the fonts you would like to use.

Displaying text larger or smaller

  • On the General tab, click Fonts.
  • Select the font size you would like.

Changing text & background colour

Website authors & designers often specify particular fonts, typefaces & background colours for their pages, & the combinations can sometimes make the text difficult to read. You can override these settings by choosing your own preferred, clearer colour scheme - black text on a yellow background gives the most contrast:

  • On the View / Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  • On the General tab, click Colours.
  • Click on the tick box labelled Use Windows Colours.
  • Click Text, & select the colour you want. Click OK.
  • Click Background, & select the colour you want to use. Click OK.
