We believe all internet users have the right to access all websites, and we work hard to make sure our website is accessible to all and we are committed to making our website as accessible to as many users as possible. Our site aims to meet or exceed Level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand. AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
Browsers and platforms
Our website has been designed and tested to work across various browsers, operating systems and devices. We support browsers including; Chrome 56+, IE11, Firefox 51+ and Safari 10, as well as a range of mobile and tablet devices including; iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and above, iPad Air 2, Samsung Galaxy s6 and Samsung Galaxy Tab A. As per the manufacturers' security recommendations, we advise that you always update to the latest version of your browser.
Adjusting font size
Here are simple instructions for the most common browsers:
Google Chrome: From the menu select the customize button (≡ 3 dots) and then select Settings. In the Appearance section choose your font size from the drop-down menu.
Internet Explorer: From the main menu select View and then choose your text size from the list.
Safari: From the main menu select View > make text bigger.
Alternatively, hold down the Ctrl key and use the scroll wheel on your mouse.
Magnifying the screen
In addition to enlarging the text in your web browser, it is also possible to use electronic magnifying glasses to zoom in on areas of the screen to make it easier to read small text or to get a closer look at the images. Most PCs and Mac computers will have screen magnifiers built in, but alternative ones are also available to download sometimes for free.
Screen read aloud
It may not be sufficient to just increase the text size or use screen magnifiers so you may benefit from using a screen reader. Mac OS X 10.4 and above has this function built in, but for Windows, you will need to download software to do this.
Windows Screen Readers: Natural Reader is free online text to speech software that will read web pages out loud for you. Window-Eyes is another professional screen reader which also has support for braille displays.
Mac OS X Built-in Screen Reader: From the Apple menu select System Preferences > Universal Access > Seeing . You can activate VoiceOver (also called Spoken Interface on older versions) which will read aloud the text to you through your computer speakers. VoiceOver which comes with Mac OS X 10.4 and above is a fully functional screen reader.
To make things easier for screen reader users, images have descriptive alternative text. If the image is purely decorative or part of a link, the alt text is null. We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
Some information is provided information in PDF (Portable Document Format). Some of our PDFs documents are essential to providing our services. For example, our booking terms and conditions are sent to you by email as a PDF attachment. If you cannot open the PDF you can download Adobe Acrobat Reader for free.
We have tried to use colours that make our web pages easy to read, but we know that some people have trouble with reading text on certain colours. Some browsers do have options to allow you to use your own colours.
