  • 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).

We've also made the website text as simple as possible to understand, and you can navigate most of the website using just a keyboard.

AbilityNet has advice on making your phone, computer or tablet easier to use, depending on your needs.

This website has been tested for Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1 level AA) compliance in October 2022.

Images on our website have alternative text attributes (alt text). This means when an image is used on a webpage to convey information its content is also described in the alt text, so the image can be understood by text browsers and screen readers.

If an image is used for simply decorative purposes, the text attribute for the image is left empty (no alt text is added) in line with accepted best practice.

If you need information on this website in a different format like an accessible PDF, large print, easy read, audio recording or Braille, please email:
