We take the issue of accessibility very seriously. Our aim is to make as much of the site compliant with the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) guidelines as possible. This is helped by providing features that assist users to read the pages. See the links below to find out how to
- have the site read to you (using the Browsealoud feature)
- increase the size of the text on the page.
However, there will be certain areas of the site that it is not practical to make completely accessible. For example, some of the mapping features might not lend themselves to an easy text alternative.
For more information about making the web easier to use please visit the BBC's 'My Web My Way' website (see link below).
