Accessibility Tools [Optional]
Below are a few tips to help you better access our website. For a more complete guide to making your computer accessible on the web, we recommend visiting the AbilityNet My Computer My Way 8 website.
Making Pages Easier To Read In Your Browser [Optional]Web pages can be difficult to view when the text is too small. The most popular browsers, such as Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Safari support the following mouse actions and keyboard strokes to zoom in and out on a web page. (Use the Control key in Windows systems, and the Command key in Mac OS.) • Hold the Control/Command key and scroll up or down to zoom in or out • Hold the Control/Command key and press + or – to zoom in or out
Magnifying Your Screen [Optional]
Another way to make text easier to read is by magnifying your screen.
All versions of Windows 7 or newer include a magnifier, which allows users to enlarge a portion of the screen. People with visual impairments, however, may find that they require fully functional magnification software.
Users running Apple’s OS X operating systems can use the in-built Zoom feature. Read about OSX accessibility features12
Using a Screen Reader [Optional]Windows users can use Windows Narrator which converts on-screen text into speech. This is available in Windows 1013, Windows 8/RT14, Windows 715, and Windows Vista16.
In Apple’s OSX operating system, users will find the VoiceOver17 feature.
PDF files [Optional]
We use PDF files to help us preserve the look and feel of our original documents. To open and view PDF files, you can download the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader18 free of charge.
Adobe also publishes information on Accessing PDFs with assistive technology19.
Access Keys [Optional]
Most web browsers support linking to specific pages by typing named access keys:
- Windows users
- Mozilla Firefox & Netscape: Press ALT + an access key.
- Microsoft Internet Explorer: Press ALT + an access key + ENTER
- Apple Users: Press CONTROL + OPTION + an access key.
All pages on this site use the following access keys for common tasks:
- S - Skip to Content
- 1 - Home Page
- 2 – News

- 5 - Contact Us
- 0 – Accessibility
All pages contain a 'skip to content' link for users who use speech browsers or keyboard navigation who wish to avoid repeated groupings of links.
Changing Text Sizes [Optional]
This site CSS uses relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified 'text size' option in visual browsers. If you need to change the text size in your web browser, we have the following tutorials:
Changing Text Size in Internet Explorer20
Changing Text Size in Google Chrome21
Changing Text Size in Mozilla Firefox22
Changing Text Size in Opera23
Links and Images [Optional]
Necessary links were assigned 'TITLE' attributes to describe the target in greater detail. Users of assistive technology may wish to set screen reader options to take full advantage of this feature.
Relevant images used in this site include a descriptive 'ALT' attribute. Those images which are purely decorative or used for layout include a null 'ALT' attribute.
Screen reader table functions within screen readers may be used on this site. The tables are properly coded to take advantage these functions. Example: Using JAWS in Internet Explorer, use Control - ALT - Right Arrow to properly read a table with table headers.
Tables used in this site include 'SUMMARY' attributes to describe the table in greater detail.
