Accessibility features of this website

Greyscale

Using a toggle switch, users can turn the site greyscale removing all colour from text and images. This is convenient for users with visual impairments such as colour blindness. This feature will disable colours that make a display more difficult to see, and can make reading menus and viewing images more detailed for certain users.

High Contrast

Using a toggle switch, users can make site colours highly contrasting. This setting benefits users with low vision and or other visual impairments and will invert the web page background and text colours.

Text Resizer

Using a scale of three ‘A’s site users can make text larger or smaller to suit their individual reading needs. This makes the site more flexible and allows the user to take control to apply their own viewing preferences.
