If you find anything on our site difficult to use, tell us about it in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org

On that site you can learn about your computer’s accessibility features and useful software you can install. These are known as assistive technologies.
If you have difficulty reading English, perhaps because it is not your main language or you have dyslexia, a mild visual impairment or learning difficulties, you may find it helpful to have the website text read out for you. One tool that does this for free is BrowseAloud
These standards and guidelines were developed specifically for UK audiences and for use with technology commonly available in the UK.
