Accessibility

In order to make this website as user-friendly as possible for people with disabilities, we have taken the following aspects of the site into account:

Language

The site has been written using plain, simple language and we have avoided unnecessary use of jargon and abbreviations.

Website navigation

  • The website uses a clear and consistent menu structure which enables you to move around the site quickly and easily.
  • A 'breadcrumb trail' has been included to show whereabouts you are at any time (ie: Homepage > Accessibility).
  • An index-style sitemap will help you to quickly find specific pages.
  • Links in the main text are clearly defined with an underline.

Type size and style

  • The style and size of fonts have been carefully chosen for easy reading.
  • Text can be resized using your standard browser controls. You can find detailed guidelines on how to adjust your browser settings in the accessibility section of the BBC website.

Colours

  • The colour palette has been chosen to provide contrast between text and background colours.
  • Text is displayed on a plain background to ensure easy readability.

Graphics

To help people using screen readers, alternative text has been added to all pictures, buttons and logos.
