Website Accessibility Features

Some users might find screen text easier to read by increasing the size at which text is displayed.   To do this, click on the large letter A in the top navigation bar of the site.  Each click will increase the font size further. 


To decrease the font size, click on the small letter A until you reach your preferred size.


To return to medium font size, click on the medium letter A.


Browser Accessibility Features

Most browsers have built in accessibility features such as the ability to increase the magnification of fonts, change the colour of the text and to turn off images and style-sheets.  For full details, visit the accessibility websites of popular web-browser developers:


Linux - KDE or Gnome
Mozilla Firefox

Increasing text size

Some users might find screen text easier to read by increasing the size at which text is displayed.


To do this simply adjust your browser's settings:


Microsoft Internet Explorer: go to the View menu, select Text Size and then either Larger or Largest.

Netscape Navigator: go to the View menu and choose Increase Font until the text is the size you desire.

Mozilla Firefox: go to the View menu, select Text Size and then select Increase.  The same effect can be achieved by using the keyboard shortcut keys; Ctrl and + (at the same time).

Changing background colour

Many browsers provide functionality to adjust the background colour of the page or the colour of text:

Mozilla Firefox: go to the options menu (Tools > Options), in the General tab, click Fonts & Colours.

Adobe Acrobat support


All documents have been include in Adobe Acrobat  format  to provide decent  accessibility.


Adobe Acrobat Reader version 6 and above has incorporated accessibility features into standard readers.  For example, users can hear a PDF document read aloud, or scroll a PDF document automatically.


The read aloud feature can also translate the document  into a range of European languages.  You can access these features in the Edit Preferences menu.


If you use screen reader software (for example an audio-enabled web browser) which is not compatible with Adobe Reader, Adobe provide a free online tool which converts the content of PDF files to a format which can be understood by most screen reader applications.


You can configure your web browser to open PDF files, either within the browser window or in a separate Adobe Acrobat window. There are detailed instructions on the Acrobat website on how to do so for different browsers.

Alternatives to Adobe Acrobat Reader
