We are committed to providing relevant information and services to everyone. This means that no matter where you are located, how you use the internet and what impairments you may have, you should still be able to access the information you need. With this in mind we have been very careful to make this website as "accessible" as we can. There are a number of facilities that we have built into the site to make this possible and this page explains what they are. Access keys, screen readers, changing text size, font colour, text only version.
Below is a list of free screen readers that can be downloaded and installed on your machine. Once installed these tools will read out the content of the web page to you. Download Browsealoud (new window) Download PWwebspeak (new window)

Changing Font Size
We have coded our pages so that it should be possible for you to easily increase or decrease the size of the site's text using your browser's built in controls.
