Accessibility

We are committed to making our website usable by all people, whatever their abilities or disabilities.

Find the right assistive technology to customise this site to your needs

While the site has been created to be usable ‘as is’, many people are likely to get the most accessible experience of using this site by customising their computer to suit their individual needs – for example: to get the site spoken to them, to change its colour-scheme, or increase the size of its fonts.

If that sounds like it would be useful to you, we recommend you visit BBC My Web My Way to watch videos of how these customisations – either using accessibility features of your computer or through installing assistive technologies – might suit you.

Limitations of this site’s accessibility

While we have done a lot to ensure this site’s accessibility, you may find some limitations:  while we always aim to communicate clearly and as simply as possible, some of the articles may require a reasonable level of technical understanding due to the technical nature of what they are about while the site has been created with accessibility in mind and it has been reviewed by experts for accessibility, the site has not been fully user-tested with disabled people.
