We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:
- Change colours, contrast levels and fonts
- Zoom in up to 200% without the text spilling off the screen
- Navigate the website using just a keyboard
- Navigate the website using speech recognition software
- Read most of the website on devices without a screen, like a braille computer
We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand. The structure was created to simulate a real practice, which seeks improved usability for the patients.
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
