Improving your Accessibility on Francis ONeills website

1 in 5 in US with disability imageThis accessibility on Francis ONeills website page also includes valuable disability links resource for the UK and US (below).

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 to improving your accessibility on this website, 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.

You will find similar options in all browsers. But do check out the accessibility options of your computer first.

I had intended to write more instructions on this page to help you achieve greater accessiblity, but then I came across the following wonderful BBC (UK) Web pages which provide all the help and more that you are likely to need. Do explore the BBC Website at the following address: http://www.bbc.co.uk/accessibility

I wish you every success in improving your enjoyment of using the Internet and programs in general by following the advice given at the BBC Website.
