Ensuring Our Website Is Accessible To All
Our website has been developed with the needs of disabled and less able users in mind. In particular, the use of relative font sizes and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) for layout ensures the full functionality of your browser’s accessibility tools.
All web browsers allow you to enlarge the font size of websites for greater ease of reading. This function is accessed in Internet Explorer via the view menu:
View > text size > then select either larger or largest
The main accessibility options in Internet Explorer are accessed via the tools menu:
Tools > Internet Options > Accessibility

Please note that all three options can be selected simultaneously, overriding all the font style, text size and colour formatting specified in the page's mark-up.
For users who require greater control over the appearance of the page, Internet Explorer allows you to use formatting from your own style sheet. Using a personal style sheet is of particular benefit to users who find a particular text/background colour combination enhances their ability to read text. A personal style sheet can be used to control all aspect of the page’s formatting including font style, size and colour. It also allows pages to be displayed in much larger font sizes than the standard text size tools.
