WHAT IS ACCESSIBILITY AND WHY DOES IT MATTER?

To be accessible the Take 7 Steps Out website must be as easy to use and understand for as many visitors as possible. We comply with the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C’s) Level A guidelines for accessibility and we are committed to improving.

CAN I CHANGE FONT SIZES AND COLOURS OF THE WEBSITE?

Yes. This may be useful for you if you have low vision, and need larger fonts or high contrast colours. You can change the font size, style and colour, and choose an alternative colour for links. You can also change background and foreground colours.

Using the two buttons at the top right corner of the page you will be able to view the webpage in an alternative colour to make certain areas of the site easier to view.
