Changing the text size

 

 

 

This site is predominantly text based, if you - or someone you know - require specifically tailored browser software to read or hear the text then the following link may be of use:

Alternative browser tools

All text uses relative font sizes so text can be enlarged or reduced using the text size options available in visual browsers

How do I change the text size of my browser?

All pages use flexible page formats so pages can be automatically resized for different window sizes and screen resolutions

Other aspects of this site, configured for accessibility:

Tables have alternative descriptions for use in browsers for the partially sighted

All images have ALT descriptions for speech based browsers

Most navigation elements are plain text and we have provided text alternatives to graphics on the site.

Those with poor sight may be able to increase the size of the text on screen.

See the table below, which outlines the procedure for most popular browsers.

If your browser is not listed in the table, the following general guideline may help: Looking under the "View" selection on the main menu, you should find an option called "Text Zoom" or "Text Magnification" or "Text Size" or "Font Size".

From that point it should be relatively simple to find and select an additional sub menu option that adjusts text size to your needs.

How to find out what Browser you are using: Generally this is found under the Help section of the browser tool bar under 'about' or similar.
