These include changing the settings of your browser to better suit your needs and using specially provided keyboard shortcuts in case you have difficulty using a mouse.

Changing browser settings

Most browsers allow you to:

  • Ignore settings specified by a web page
  • Change the size of the font
  • Change the style of the font
  • Change the colour of the font
  • Change the background colour
  • Stop images downloading (so they are not visible)

To change your settings, please click on one of the following browser types for a step by step guide:
