  1. How do I make the size of text bigger?

    At the top, right corner of the site you'll see a button with 3 different sized As on it to enlarge text. Click these to make the font size bigger to suit your vision.

  2. How do I change the fonts so I can read the site more easily?

    We have designed this site to be as legible as possible, however you may find certain fonts even easier to read - these can be changed in your operating system, such as Windows, or you can change it for just for your web browsers, such as Internet Explorer or Firefox, so that they appear every time you surf the internet.

    The system font is the text used to show menus and labels:

    Windows: Right click an empty area of the Desktop, Personalize, Display.

    Ubuntu (Linux): System menu > System Settings > Universal Access > Seeing tab.

    Chrome: Dropdown menu > Settings > Show advanced settings > look under Web content.

    For internet browser however, so we would recommend some of the helpful "How to"  guides on the BBC website that can aid you to make the right changes: www.bbc.co.uk

  3. I need to magnify the site more to see it, how do I do this?

    If increasing the text size on your operating system or web browser does not make text easy to read, then the next step is to magnify the screen. If you are using Windows 7, Windows XP or Windows Vista, search "Magnifier". This is a tool that will work glass a magnifying glass where ever you put your cursor on screen.

    If you are using a Mac, you will find the "Universal Access" menu in your System Preferences has a number of tools to help you, including a 'Zoom' which will let you magnify areas on the page.

    If you are using a Linux system, you will need to look for your 'Assistive Technologies' menu in your System Preferences, the 'Orca Magnifier' tool will allow you to zoom into areas to help you.

  4. Where can I get further help accessing this site?

    Most computers have options that can make it easier for people with low or no vision to use them - these can be more helpful than changing the settings for this site as then you will then have your computer set-up for all future use and these features alone enable you to use your computer better overall.

    A full list of areas to investigate can be found on the Royal National Insitite of Blind People's advice website here:

  5. Can I change the screen colours to help me read the site better?

    Most often text is shown as dark text on a lighter background. You can invert these colour options or choose specific colours to use for text and background:

    Windows 7 or 8: right click an empty area of the Desktop and choose Personalize. Choose a theme and then go to Window Color for further options. The keyboard shortcut Left Alt + Left Shift + Print Screen toggles High Contrast theme on and off.

    Windows XP: Start menu > Control Panel > Display > Appearance. The keyboard shortcut Left Alt + Left Shift + Print Screen toggles High Contrast theme on and off.

    Mac OS X: Apple menu > System Preferences > Accessibility (or Universal Access) > Display, or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-Opt-Cmd-8 to invert colours.

    Ubuntu: Super key, type "gnome-control-center" without the quotes. Press Enter, then click appearance.

    Chrome: Dropdown menu > Settings > Show advanced settings > look under Accessibility.

  6. Can I make the cursor or 'mouse pointer' bigger to help me use the site more easily?

    Yes, you can often change the size of the mouse pointer, and sometimes the shape and colour too. There may be options to make it more obvious, for example by adding trails to it.

    Windows: Start menu > Control Panel > Mouse (or Hardware and Sound > Mouse).

    Mac OS X: Apple menu > System Preferences > Accessibility (or Universal Access) > Display (or Mouse & Trackpad). It is only possible to change the size of the cursor (pointer).

    Ubuntu: Super key, type "gnome-control-center" without the quotes. Press Enter, then click appearance.
