It's important that you can get the most from our website and we’re always looking for ways to improve its accessibility. The website conforms with 'AA' W3C Web Content Accessibility guidelines and we've introduced an accessibility style changer to help you use the site. We'll also be adding information in British Sign Language.


Accessibility style changer

You can find the accessibility style changer at the top right of every page. The buttons change the background colour and text colour across the site. You can choose from:

  • standard colours and text size (default)
  • pastel background with dark text
  • high contrast

Nearly all modern web browsers have options that can help you access websites more easily. If possible, try to make sure your browser software is up to date so it has the latest features, and is typically more secure.


If you need further help with making the web easier to use, visit the BBC's My Web My Way website to find out how to change your internet browser, computer, keyboard and mouse settings to make the web more accessible to you.
