Accessibility

This website is run by Brain in Hand Ltd. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen;
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard;
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software;
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader.

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

 

We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible. For example:

  • you cannot modify the line height or spacing of the text;
  • most older PDF documents are not fully accessible to screen reader software;
  • some of our pages are difficult to navigate using just a keyboard;
  • you cannot skip to sections of each page when using a screen reader.

Using your own software or settings for accessibility

We recognise that different people may need to make any of a wide range of adjustments to make it easier for them to view websites. This site is designed to work with as many as possible of the solutions offered by computers, mobile devices, and browsers; this means that you should be able to easily apply settings that work for you to your viewing experience.

How adjustments are made depends on what sort of device (mobile, tablet, or computer) and browser (such as Chrome, Safari, or Microsoft Edge) you use to view the website. Computers and mobile devices commonly have built-in accessibility features that you can apply to your browser as well as to other software that you use.

 

Browsers also have built-in accessibility features, which you can apply to all websites or turn on and off as required. There are also browser extensions available to give you easier access to your settings; these may also allow you to more easily create different settings for each website you visit.

To find out more about the accessibility options available, you may wish to refer to some of these websites:

Browser extensions can allow you to apply a range of settings; many are freely available from your browser’s extension store. For one example, here is the ‘accessibility’ section of Chrome’s extension store.
