Access Keys

We do not use use ‘accesskey’ for shortcuts as these have the potential to conflict with shortcuts used by browsers and therefore offer no benefit.

Primary Navigation

The main primary navigation follows the content of the page in the underling code so that anyone using assistive software like screen readers do not need to skip lots of links.

Text Size

Most modern browsers allow you to change the size of the text by holding down the Ctrl button then by moving your mouse wheel up or down.

In Internet Explorer go to the View menu, select Text Size and then choose your required size from the options.

In Mozilla, Firefox or Netscape hold the Ctrl or cmd button and then press + to increase or - to decrease the text size.

In Opera you can just press the + or - keys located on the keypad to increase or decrease the text size.
Alternatively go to View menu, select Zoom and choose your required size from the options.
