... making websites usable by everyone?

At the top of each page of the desktop version of a site is an "accessibility toolbar" that allows users to do the following:

  • Change to a different colour scheme, including reversing the colours - some people will find this easier to read
  • Make the text larger or smaller
  • Change to a different font - again some people find different fonts easier to read
  • Convert the page to "text-only" mode - this may be helpful if you are using a software "screen reader" though the leading screen readers also work well with the screen in normal text mode
  • Get the contents of the page spoken to you through the computer loudspeaker or headphones
  • Print a copy of the page as a PDF file without the menus and toolbars
  • Translate the page into a different language.

The BSL (British Sign Language) video includes a welcome to Digital Fife.

Finally there is an online learning module on "writing for the web" that will show you how to make your site content easy to follow and understand.
