We are always working to make our website accessible. However, if you find anything difficult to use the information on this page will help you.

Assistive technology

We encourage our users to customise their own computer with assistive technologies to suit their individual needs. For example you may like to change the colour scheme or have the site content spoken to you. If you are not sure how to do this we recommend you visit BBC My Web, My Way.


We try to ensure our site content is accessible, however, you may find some limitations;

  • We always aim to communicate simply and clearly. Unfortunately, this is not always possible as our website has many different authors covering many different subjects. Some subjects can be complicated.
  • Although we develop our website with accessibility in mind we do not always have the site user-tested. Instead we rely on genuine users to tell us if they have a problem.
