We try to make our sites accessible to as many users as possible, so that everybody gets to experience the site the way it's intended.
We test some common issues and if they’re applicable we will act on it. This involves running our sites through a browser bookmark to check for things such as contrast and disappearing text. We can then assist our users who suffer from colour blindness.
We usually aim to keep contrast high on designs to avoid this being an issue. If you can’t see the site, we don’t want to let you down, you can either use this helpful information from the BBC or get in touch to let us know - [email protected].
We aim to make the font sizes on our website big enough for general use but if you’re having issues you can change the font sizes on your machine or in your browser. Once again the BBC have some excellent guides.
We design using the latest responsive web technologies so increasing the zoom of the site should not compromise the experience at all.
There should not be any problems with common screen readers. However, if you are having an issue then please do not hesitate to get in contact - [email protected]
We are aware of course that there may be other difficulties other than those listed here. Head on over to the BBC for guides on how to make your visit to our site better for you:
And please, if you experience any issues with our website, then we want to hear about them. They’ll help us to make the site better and more accessible than ever. Send us an email at - [email protected]
