We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

- Resize to the size of your window, and display a readable text size whichever device you are using
- Zoom in up to 175% without the text spilling off the screen
AbilityNet also has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
