Changing your settings
Changing the way a web page looks can help people with vision impairments and it has also been known to help people with dyslexia. In this page we explain how you can change:
Using these options will hopefully enable everyone to see our web site in a way that works best for them.
All browsers let you change text size or "zooming" into the page to make it bigger. For example:
- IE: hold the Control key and use the Mouse wheel.
- Firefox: hold the Control key and press "+" or "-".
- Opera: press "+" or "-" on the numeric pad.
If you benefit from page zoom we strongly recommend that you use Opera or Firefox rather than IE because these browsers provide far better zoom features than IE.
All the main browsers provide you with the ability to change colours, but it's much easier in Firefox and Opera which also go further than IE by letting you change the layout of the page:
- Firefox: Use the menu View > Page Style, then select "no style"
- Opera: Use the menu View > Style, then select "User mode"
Colours can be changed by using the following menus and options:
- IE: Use the menu Tools > Internet Options, then click the "Colors" button
- Firefox: Use the menu Tools > Options, then click the "Fonts & Colors" button
- Opera: Use the menu Tools > Preferences, click on "Page Style"
