Accessibility.

Viewing options.

For your convenience, we've provided you with a number of different ways in which you can view this website.

Most people find a font style such as Arial or Verdana more comfortable or easy to read.

This website uses Verdana, Garamond, Helvetica, Arial, and sans-serif fonts. The fonts are sized in 'ems' and 'px' but it may be of further help to many to follow the links to accessibility websites shown below.

If these sizes are still not suitable, please follow how to increase the size of the text.

To increase the text size using one of these browsers

  • Internet Explorer: View Text size
  • Firefox: View Text size
  • Opera: File Preferences Fonts Minimum font size (pixels)

Alternatively, scroll with the wheel of your mouse whilst holding down the control key. Scrolling up with your mouse will make text smaller and scrolling down will make text larger. This will work on your emails too.

Happily, most browsers allow users to enlarge or shrink the font size according to their preferences. The Opera browser even allows the entire document to be enlarged, including images.
