Accessibility – using our website

Hi-Vis UK websites

We only use sites such as WordPress (where we built this course) and Vimeo (for our videos) because they, like us, work towards the highest standards in accessibility.

In addition to existing accessibility software you might already use or your preferred browser’s tools, we have included here on our site an accessibility toolkit to make the pages easier for you to use, for example, changing the size and colour of the text.See images below.

The accessibility page can always be found by clicking on the accessibility page the link in the top right corner of your screen.

A site map can be found in the very bottom right hand corner of the screen.

For our toolkit click on the yellow eye symbol/icon in the top left-hand corner of every page.

Web Browsers e.g. Google Chrome

You can also find many free accessibility tools included with most web browser’s such as: Google Chrome, Apple’s Safari, Mozilla’s Firefox, Microsoft’s Explorer.

These all include accessibility controls you can use to enable your computer to do many things such as reading the pages aloud to you if you find it difficult to see the text.

To find out how to turn these features on or to find out more about what your browser can do for you, a good place to start is AbilityNet’s “My Computer, My Way” website.

There you will find free, expert advice and information:
