We have set some handy tools at the top of the site to aid folks with visual impairments (or who just like things big and bright! I like the white colour way myself.)
This site aims to accommodate all the points of W3cWeb Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA. With some exceptions:
- Some ‘show-off’ design elements may not work but we are sure to make the content these elements is displaying is also supplied alongside in an accessible format.
We really want to hear from you if you have an issue using this site. Contact us and let us know whats wrong and we will try to accommodate.
Whether you are using a Smartphone, Tablet, PC or Mac, BrowseAloud Plus will provide the speech and reading support tools you require for free.
