Where Are The Accessibility Features For This Website?
Many accessibility benefits can be achieved by making adjustments to the operating system or internet browser you are using. It makes much more sense to make these permanent alterations which you require, so that every website you visit, adjusts to your preferred accessibility options, not just websites by Bassetlaw District Council.
The advice given on the BBC accessibility website "My Web My Way" is so comprehensive and easy to follow, we would simply be trying to re-invent the wheel, so instead, we strongly advise using these guides to make the changes you require. This will ensure every website you visit is suited to your needs.
