Screen Readers

The Pennine website has been built with several features to make it user friendly and accessible. The site can be used with a screen reader.

High Contrast Layout

The website has a default style controlling the layout and colour scheme of each page. On the side of each page there is a toggle tool bar that allows you to change both font size and high contrast to enable an alternative layout for lower vision users. The website will remember your choice so that when you navigate around the Pennine website your style choice will be remembered. Simply click on the toggle again to return back to the default layout.

Text Size

If the text size is not large enough after clicking on the toggle you can change the text size you can change by using your browser controls (both in default and high contrast styles) by using the text size option in your browser. To change the text size look for the View Menu and select Text Size or Text Zoom and choose an alternative size for the text on screen.
