We aim to make our website accessible to as many people as possible and implement the UK Government access keys.
Access keys are keyboard shortcuts which allow a user to navigate a web site without using a mouse or other pointing device. This can sometimes be quicker and may assist those with motor skill difficulties.
Access keys work slightly differently depending on which browser and operating system you are using:
|Internet Explorer||Alt + Access key + Enter|
|Chrome||Alt + Access key||Ctrl + Opt + Access key||Alt + Shift + Access key|
|Firefox||Alt + Shift + Access key||Ctrl + Access key||Alt + Shift + Access key|
|Safari||Alt + Access key||Ctrl + Opt + Access key|
|Opera||Shift + Esc + Access key||Shift + Esc + Access key|
We have enabled our website to be used with BrowseAloud software.
Speech enabling our website provides an additional way of accessing content for people who find it hard to read. This includes those with dyslexia or learning difficulties, those for whom English is not their first language, or anyone with a mild visual impairment.
BrowseAloud is free to download and users have control over the voice, word pronunciations and speech highlighting.
