Reading Ruler

The reading ruler is to assist you with reading the website. The ruler will follow the movements of your mouse cursor, covering the space above and below to make it easier to read one line at a time.

Screen reader

Screen Reader

For blind and visually impaired users we recommend NVDA (NonVisual Desktop Access), a free "screen reader" application which reads the text on the screen in a computerised voice.

You can control what is read to you by moving the cursor to the relevant area of text with a mouse or the arrows on your keyboard.
