The following describes in detail how users can use the website more easily and efficiently with different tools built into the browser operating system and the website.
This website allows users to navigate using only the keyboard. You can navigate the website by pressing the “Tab” key, which is most often located on the left-hand side of the keyboard. Each press of the key moves the cursor to the next element of the page, such as links to other pages or buttons relevant to the page. Pressing the “Shift” and “Tab” keys simultaneously moves the cursor to the previous element. The focused element is highlighted by a colour change and looks like a framed box. To activate this element (i.e. “click on it”), press the “Enter” key.
The first element available when navigating with the keyboard is a shortcut to the main content of the page – you can use this to skip navigation elements and get straight to the content of each page, which is particularly handy for screen reader users.
There are three main types of website zoom:
1. the font (text) size embedded in the website
This website incorporates three different font (text) sizes, which you can choose by ticking them here or in the top right corner of the website under “Settings”. If you choose one of the font sizes, all content on the website will be enlarged to that size.
2. Options built into the browser
All popular browsers allow you to zoom in and out, or reduce the size of the displayed content. To zoom in, press the “Ctrl” and “+” keys on the keyboard at the same time, to zoom out press “Ctrl” and “-“. Alternatively, hold down the “Ctrl” key and scroll up or down with the mouse roller.
3. Operating system built-in options
Windows 10 and Windows 7 have a magnifier, a program that allows you to zoom in. Press the Start menu and type “Magnifier” (“Start” > “Magnifier”) and press the Enter key. A small overlapping window appears, which you can move with the mouse and zoom in on all the contents at different distances.
On Apple computers, go to Apple menu > System Preferences > Accessibility (or Universal Access) > Zoom.
On Windows XP, go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > Accessibility > Magnifier.
This website allows users to get more contrast in text by changing the colours of the content. You can change the contrast of the website in three different combinations:
To change the contrast, you can select the one you want here or in the top right corner of the website under “Settings”.
A screen reader is software that attempts to detect and interpret what is being displayed on the screen. This interpretation is then repeated to the user in audio form or via a Braille display.
The content of this website has been created in accordance with the technical standards of the screen reader. For example, images have ‘alt’ texts (a textual description of the content of the image), while buttons, content and other practical elements of the page are placed and arranged so that the sequence of information is logical and easy for the screen reader to follow.
