Accessibility


We’re working to make this site as accessible as possible for visitors regardless of their ability, disability or general awareness of using the internet. 

All modern browsers allow you to change colours and font sizes. We’ve tried to create a site which doesn’t get in the way when you change these settings

For advice on changing settings, visit BBC Accessibility Website

You can choose your operating system (e.g Windows), your Browser (e.g Internet Explorer) and the problem you’re trying to fix. You’ll then get lots of relevant advice on accessibility settings.

The following web sites provide further accessibility information for your web browser:
