We are committed to making our own website accessible and usable by all people, whatever their abilities or disabilities.
While the site has been created to be as usable as possible, many people are likely to get the best experience of using this site by customising their computer to suit their individual needs; for example: to get the site spoken to them, to change its colour-scheme, or increase the size of its fonts.
If that sounds like it would be useful to you, we recommend you visit BBC My Web, My Way to watch videos of how these customisations – either using accessibility features of your computer or through installing assistive technologies – might suit you.
We are also planning to incorporate some of these customisations within this site in the future, to make it easier for people to use who cannot customise their computer for some reason.
While we have made every effort to ensure that this site is as easy to use and accessible as possible, you may find some limitations. We always aim to communicate clearly and as simply as possible, however, some of the articles may require a reasonable level of technical understanding due to the technical nature of what they are about.
If you find anything on the site difficult to use please let us know on our Contact Us page.
To help us get to the bottom of your difficulty, it would help us if you provide the information advised in ‘Contacting Organisations about Inaccessible Websites’ in your request.
All constructive feedback regarding the accessibility or usability of this website is welcome and will
be carefully considered.
This statement follows the advice on accessibility statements in BS 8878 Web Accessibility Standards.
On 28 May 2019, BS 8878 was superseded by ISO 30071-1, the international standard that built on BS 8878 and expanded it for international use. More information can be found at ISO 30071-1 digital accessibility standards – All You Need to Know.
