We want our website to be accessible to everyone and we aim to make your experience the best it can be.

What we want to achieve

We’re working with Nomensa, who carries out checks on our website to ensure it achieves a high standard of accessibility, and we’re striving to meet the W3C’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines at level AA.

The W3C are an international community that develops standards for the internet. Its guidelines help ensure everyone has access to the web, regardless of their ability or the type of equipment they have.

What we support

As part of our goal to make your experience a good one, we aim to support many different ways of accessing our content and services, including:

  • Keyboard-only access (including voice control)
  • Zooming with browser controls
  • Magnification
  • Screen readers
  • Easy-to-understand terminology and links

What you can do

There are many ways you can make your computer or device work better for your needs, and if you struggle with some things, we recommend trying to customise it. The BBC has several how-to guides for different disabilities and technologies here.

If you have any issues accessing our services, or any questions, queries or comments, then please let us know – see our Contact page for details.
