Accessibility Standards
Accessibility
Disability BackUp is committed to delivering a website that is usable and inclusive. We strive to uphold these principles and objectives to comply with the Web Content Accessible Guidelines 1.0 (WCAG 1.0). The content on this website, implemented with our web technology, should be usable on all widely-used recommended browsers and be accessible to all users regardless of their ability.

Changing the Appearance of the Screen
You can alter the accessibility of these pages by changing the on-screen appearance of the text and background on most recommended browsers. Below are some suggestions. Please note that all are reversible and do not affect images.

      Microsoft Internet Explorer
To apply the font and colour changes listed below:
  On the View/Tools menu, select Internet Options
  On the General tab, select Accessibility
  Make sure that each of the three formatting instruction boxes are ticked

Changing the Font
Using a sans serif font (such as Arial), rather than a serif font (such as Times New Roman) can make text easier to read.
  On the View or Tools menu, select Internet Options
  On the General tab, select Fonts in the Proportional and Fixed-width font lists
  Select the fonts you would like to use

Displaying Text Larger or Smaller
You can increase or decrease text size using the text size option in the View menu. Certain combinations of fonts, typefaces and background colours can sometimes make text more difficult to read.

You can change these settings by choosing your own colour scheme. Black text on a yellow background gives the greatest degree of contrast.
  On the View/Tools menu, select Internet Options
  On the General tab, select Colours
  Select the tick box labelled Use Windows Colours
  Select Text, and the colour you want, then Select OK
  Select Background, and the colour you want, then Select OK
