Visitors to the site may like to alter the size at which text is displayed. To do this, you will need to adjust your browser settings.
In Internet Explorer, go to the View menu, select Text Size and then select Larger/Largest etc.
If you are using Netscape/Mozilla/Opera, go to the View menu and select Text Zoom.
If you have a mouse with a roller wheel, you can change the size of the text by holding down the 'Ctrl' key and scrolling the mouse wheel.
Changing the site's background colour can be particularly useful for users who rely on magnification technology as white can produce an uncomfortable glare. It is also possible to change the colour of body text on the site. Both can be achieved by changing preferences in your browser:
If you use Microsoft Internet Explorer, go to the Tools menu, select Internet Options, select Colours and make changes to text and background colours in the Colours panel.
If you use Netscape Navigator, go to the Edit menu, select Preferences, open the Appearance menu and select Colours. You can set the colour of text and background from here.
