The BBC have made a series of accessibility guides, to help you change your computer and browser settings to make websites more accessible. They have split these guides into these helpful sections:
- I can't see very well
- I am blind
- I can't hear very well
- I find words difficult
- I find a keyboard or mouse difficult to use
These guides will help you to use your keyboard instead of the mouse, make your computer speak aloud, and make the text bigger. An overview of all the guides can be found here.
