This website has been designed to be as accessible to as many users as possible.

We have not included a feature on the site which enables you to increase the font size by the click of a button because although these can be useful, there are no standards to follow and there are simple ways to achieve the same result with your own computer. Once this is done, web pages you visit (not just ours) will appear with the adjustments you have put in place. This means you won't need to adjust every site you visit.

  • Windows Internet Explorer, use the View - Text Size menu
  • Macintosh Internet Explorer and Netscape 6 and 7, use the View - Text Zoom menu
  • Firefox and other Mozilla browsers, use the View - Increase Text Size option
  • Safari, use the View - Make Text Bigger option
  • Opera, use the Zoom selector

Similar results can be achieved on many browsers by pressing the ctrl key on the keyboard and either pressing the + and - key. If you use a mouse and it has a scroll wheel, you can also use that to increase and decrease font whilst holding the ctrl key.

You may also wish to read the BBC's accessibility guides which offer advice on how you may wish to adjust your computer to further meet your needs on any website you may visit

Please do not hesitate to contact us and we will do all we can to assist you.
