Accessibility advice

Some advice for making any website more accessible…

Disability should not prevent access to websites. PC and MAC computers both have varying inbuilt settings that help all users access and enter information.

We have used Microsoft Windows 7 operating systems as examples but there will be similar features and support in all operating systems  (please consult your manuals or online help to find out specifics for your system).

In Windows 7 there is an 'Ease of Access' Centre which gives quick links to accessibility features - simply press the Windows logo key and 'U' to open the centre
