Accessibility

Changing colours, font, text size and other settings

All modern browsers allow you to change colours and font sizes. We’ve tried to create a site which doesn’t get in the way when you change these settings.

On a PC to increase or decrease the magnification of pages, press Ctrl and '+' to zoom in, and press Ctrl and '-' to zoom out. Press Ctrl + 0 to return to the default size.

On a Mac to increase or decrease the magnification of pages , press ⌘ and '+' to zoom in, or ⌘ and '-' to zoom out. To return the text to its original size, press ⌘ + 0.

For futher advice on changing settings, check out the BBC’s accessibility pages.

You can choose your operating system (e.g Windows), your Browser (e.g Internet Explorer) and the problem you’re trying to fix. You’ll then get lots of relevant advice on accessibility settings.

What we’ve done

Plain English
We try to write in plain English and avoid jargon. If you don’t understand something, please let us know.

Heading structures

The site uses simple heading structures which should make it easier to navigate, especially for people who use screen readers.

Web standards

We try our best to comply with code standards (e.g CSS and HTML) and W3C WAI guidelines.
