Accessibility Tips

In addition to the steps we have taken to make the software accessible to everyone; many people are likely to get the most accessible experience of using this site by customizing their computer to suit their individual needs. For example: to get the site read to them, to change its color scheme, or increase the size of its fonts.

If that sounds like it would be useful to you, we recommend you visit the excellent BBC My Web, My Way(External link) site. It is a comprehensive resource with videos of how these customizations might suit you and covers topics such as personalizing the web settings for people with:
