PCs

  • In Internet Explorer, go to "Tools" on the top menu bar, select "Internet Options", then click on the "Accessibility" button. Click the top 3 boxes in the pop-up window. If you want to make your own style, you can do it by following the instructions in the lower half of the pop-up window.

  • In Internet Explorer under the "Explorer" menu, select "Preferences", then "Web Browser" then "Web Content". In the "Page Content" area, clear the check boxes next to the items you don't want, including the style sheet.
  • If you're using Safari, go to the "Safari" menu, select "Preferences" then "Advanced". Other style sheets can be attached here.

If you are using any other browser, check its "Help" facility to find out how to do it.

Skipping content

If you're using screen-reading software, you may wish to skip the menus once you've got to know the website well. However, we've built options in to each page to allow you to go to either page content or menus.
