We really try to make our sites as accessible to as many users as possible so that everybody gets to experience the site the way it was intended.
We test some common issues and if they’re applicable we will act on it.
We run our sites through this browser bookmark to check for things such as contrast and disappearing text to assist our users who suffer from colour blindness.
We do usually aim to keep contrast high on our 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.
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 / in your browser. Once again the BBC have some excellent guides on their website.
Our sites are designed using the latest responsive web technologies so increasing the zoom of the site should not compromise the experience at all.
Our sites also should not cause any problems with common screen readers, however, if you are having an issue, then once again, please do not hesitate to get in contact.
We are aware of course that there may be other difficulties experiences 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 one of our websites, then we want to hear about them. They’ll help us to make our sites better and more accessible than ever. Send us an email at [email protected].
