Keyboard navigation

You can use the keyboard to navigate through the site:

Text size

Our site has been built so that the user can change the size of the text if required.

Magnifying the screen

If you use Windows XP you can magnify the size of the screen. Press the Start menu on the Taskbar, then click on All Programs, then Accessories, then Accessibility. Once opened click on Magnifier and the top of the screen will appear much bigger.


You can also adjust the colour in your browser:

IE7: Click on Tools, and then Internet Options, an Internet Options box will appear, click on the Colours button and adjust the colours you want.

Mozilla Firefox: Click on Tools, then Options, then Content, then on the Colours button and adjust the colours you want.
