Improving your Accessibility on Some Inspiration
Note, this page also includes a useful resource of disability links for the UK and US (below). [ Accessibility on Some Inspiration ]
I hope you will be comfortable seeing and interacting with this Website as it appears.
However, if this is not the case and you need to make adjustments you will find that there is much you can do towards improving your accessibility here, via vision, sound – and manipulation of the keyboard. This is done through changing settings in your operating system (e.g. Windows, Mac OS, Unix) and, or to your browser (e.g. Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera).
For example if you are using the Firefox browser and are having difficulty reading the text here, one simple thing you can right now is click on the View drop-down menu, then click on Zoom or Zoom Text Only to increase the size of your view of things. The Zoom Text Only will expand the size of most of the text visible here.[ Accessibility on Some Inspiration ]
You will find similar options in all browsers. But do also check out the accessibility options of your computer first – you may be surprised at the help available.
I had intended to write more instructions on this page to help you achieve greater accessiblity, but then I came across the following BBC (UK) Web pages which provide all the help and more that you are likely to need. Do explore this BBC Website at the following address: https://www.bbc.co.uk/accessibility
Also I was recently contacted by Kat, of Community Outreach (on behalf of Wikibuy). They have published a huge guide titled “Online Shopping For Consumers With Disabilities.” It has a lot of great help, tips and advice on online browsing and shopping, including helpful software you can get hold of. Take a look…
I wish you every success in improving your enjoyment of using the Internet, and programs in general, by following the tips and advice that you’ll find in the links above.
