Our website is designed to conform to World Wide Web Consortium accessibility standards, but there are some things you can do to make our site even easier to use:
Site accessibility features
By default, text is set at a medium font size, but you can resize the text on all pages using options in your web browser.
Flexible width and scalable layout
You can drag the four edges of the website to display any size you want. The page content adjusts automatically to display correctly for the shape you choose:
- If you have full screen display, select the ‘Restore down’ button at top right, to see the edges of the display window.
- Move the pointer over a display window edge until two arrows appear.
- Drag the top, bottom and side edges to the shape and size you want.
You can change your display this way in any application, not just on our website (although the content may not adjust). Next time you visit us and choose ‘Restore down’, your display will be the size and shape you last chose, regardless of where you chose it from.
