  • Zoom in up to 200% 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

This includes how to:

  • Make text larger
  • Magnify the screen
  • Change fonts and colours
  • Make your mouse pointer easier to see

  • Make your device talk to you

You can translate this website to your preferred language by changing the settings in your web browser.
