Accessibility options

We have made every effort to make this site as innovative as possible without compromising accessibility. We have included various aids to assist with accessibility, some or all of them may be useful to you. The accessibility options are all available from the drop down 'Help and Support' menu at the top of every page.

Below is a brief description of what options are available:

  • Illustration zoom
    If you want to zoom in to any visual (illustration or interactive element) then right click the visual and select 'zoom in' from the pop up menu (there are a very small number which do not have this facility). You can move the zoomed visual around the viewing area by dragging it around with the left mouse button depressed. To turn off zoom right click the visual again and select 'show all'.
  • Text Magnifier - Zoomer 2.0 FREE 3rd party program
    Magnify the area around your cursor with Zoomer. Download and launch this utility, and you'll see a small window where the area around your mouse cursor is enlarged two or four times. The Zoomer window can be moved, resized, or set to occupy the top 1/8th of the screen (like a system toolbar).

    Important: The link to this application is supplied for your convenience but as the product was NOT developed by the developers of this site we can offer no support or warranty for this program.

    Click here - to download (Windows ZIP file).
  • Virtual Keyboard - FREE 3rd party program
    Click-N-Type is an on-screen virtual keyboard designed for anyone with a disability that prevents him or her from typing on a physical computer keyboard. As long as the person can control a mouse, trackball or other pointing device, he or she can send keystrokes to virtually any Windows application or DOS application that can run within a window. Click-N-Type is a 32 bit application that requires Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP or later. There are other virtual keyboards around but you'll find Click-N-Type the easiest to use for getting text into those uncooperative places like browser URL "Address:" fields, Email "To:" addresses, Email "Subject:" fields, dialog boxes like "Open" and "Save As...", and many other problematic applications.

  • Virtual Mouse - FREE 3rd party program
    For anyone who has difficulty with mouse clicking, Point-N-Click is the ideal solution. It was designed to complement Click-N-Type, but functions excellently on its own

  • Screen Readers
    We have ensured, wherever possible, that the visual aspects of the site are tagged with text descriptions. This should make the site more useful for those using a 'screen reader'. However, many of the page illustrations and interactive elements are produced in Flash which cannot have text tags added due to technology limitations in browsers.

    Tip: To see a whole range of accessability utilities including screen readers, all in one place, many of them free, click here. There are magnifiers, screen readers, mouse enhancers, virtual keyboards, braille utilities and many more.

  • Large text version - Click here to go there now
    This version of the site takes all of the text and presents it in a large print, easy read version. Please remember that due to the very interactive and dynamic nature of the site that some visual elements will be unavailable in the large text version although we have included all pertinent interactive visuals and sized them up for easier reading.

  • Basic skills downloadable version - coming soon
    This will be an alternative of the downloadable modules of the site tailored to those with basic skills needs.
