  • Zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen.

  • Navigate most of the website using speech recognition software.
  • Our website is compatible with most screen readers, including the latest versions of Narrator (Microsoft), ChromeVox (ChromeOS), Orca (Linux), VoiceOver (Apple), and TalkBack (Android). This allows users to listen to the content on our website using their preferred screen reader.

We have also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
