Changing colours, font, text size and other settings   

All modern browsers allow you to change colours and font sizes. We’ve tried to create a site which doesn’t get in the way when you change these settings

For advice on changing settings, check out the BBC’s accessibility pages.               

You can choose your operating system (eg. Windows), your Browser (eg. Internet Explorer) and the problem you’re trying to fix. You’ll then get lots of relevant advice on accessibility settings.
