Font size and page contrast

There are various browser plugins that can offer support with accessibility however we recommend using Chrome for better compatibility. To increase font size, you can select the Ctrl key and roll the middle-mouse button in/out to increase/decrease magnification. To change contrast, try the Chrome plugins Midnight Lizard and Negative-Revert Web Colours.

These allow great flexibility in choosing colours and contrast options when viewing websites. If using Firefox, colours and contrasts can be directly altered in the browser settings in the ‘fonts and colours’ section.
