Can I use screen magnification software?
Although some of the built-in features of the web browser that you use might be helpful, they do not offer the same level of access as the magnification software packages developed by specialist software suppliers. The Royal National Institute for the Blind (RNIB) website provides in-depth information for partially sighted web users.
I have very restrictive vision. What are my options?
The Internet can be accessed using a speaking browser and refreshable Braille displays. You can download Browsealoud, read speaking software, from their website if you would like web pages read to you. Alternatively visit the RNIB website for further details of technology designed to help if you have a visual disability.
I can’t access the PDF documents on the site?
It is recommended that users download the latest version of Adobe Reader as it resolves the issue.
