We are committed to making our website as accessible as possible. We want everyone to be able to us use it, no matter what their impairments and which technologies they use.
Adapting your experience to your needs
We have made the site as usable as we can, but you might have a better experience if you change the settings on your computer to suit your individual needs. For example you might change the site’s colours, increase the text size, or have the site spoken aloud.
For help customising your experience using accessibility features already on your computer, or by installing extra assistive technologies, try these sites:

We are currently working to fix:
Some websites we link to may not have been tested for their accessibility.
Some of our older PDF documents may not work correctly with screen readers.
Our videos do not have a transcript or captions.
Most but not all of our videos are understandable by people with vision impairments without audio-description.
There may be some slight issues with how the screen displays depending on the type and version of browser you are using
