Changing your settings to make things easier

The BBC has some useful guidance about:

•    making your mouse easier to use
•    using your keyboard to control your mouse
•    alternatives to a keyboard and mouse
•    increasing the size of the text in your web browser
•    changing text and background colours
•    how to magnify your screen
•    screen readers and talking browsers.


We try to caption all our videos. You may need to click the CC label at the bottom of the YouTube player to toggle captions on and off.


We try to ensure that forms on the site are completed and coded correctly, so that assistive technologies can read out the content in a logical and appropriate way. If you have any problems with forms, please let us know.

PDF files

Some additional information is available on our website in the form of Adobe PDF files. Clicking on a link to these files will open a new browser window, and you’ll then be able to save these files to your own computer to access whenever you like. We're working to make our most important documents fully accessible, but if you have any problems with PDFs, please let us know.
