We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website.  We have included the Recite Me tool bar which means you can:

  • Change contrast levels
  • Modify the font, colours, line height or spacing of text
  • Zoom in up to 200% without text spilling off the screen
  • The text will reflow in a single column when you change the size of your browser window
  • Navigate the website using just a keyboard
  • Translate the website into a different language
  • Listen to the website using a screen reader.

The Recite me toolbar provides text to speech functionality, fully customisable styling features, reading aids and a translation tool with over 100 languages, including 35 text to speech voices and many other features.

We have also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
