This website is run by Mark Tomkins. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:
- change colours, contrast levels and fonts
- 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 (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)
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.
How accessible this website is
We aim to meet WCAG 2.1AA standard. We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible:
- some fonts, colours and text sizes may require individual adjustment
- most images have been chosen with high contrast but some may have text over them and we have endeavoured to provide that text in contrast to the image
- most PDF documents are not fully accessible to screen reader software
- live video streams do not have captions
- there are some pages with a lot of text content to explain a complex subject – this may prove an extra challenge to some
