Font

To make it easier for you to read on a screen, we’ve:

  • used an easy-to-read font
  • used text colours that contrast well with the background colours 
  • made it possible for you to change the font size.

Changing your font size

How you change your font size depends on the browser you’re using.

If you use a screen reader

Not everyone uses a traditional browser so we've designed our sites to work with screen readers. We use text (in ALT tags) to describe images, and we use descriptive links so you know where the link takes you.

We don’t use frames which are difficult for screen readers or special browsers to interpret.

PDF

We use Adobe PDF to send out and display electronic documents. You can convert most electronic documents or images to a PDF with Acrobat software. Anyone can read these documents using Acrobat or the free Adobe Reader software.
