We want it to be accessible for everyone, no matter what device or assistive technology you are using.

More accessibility features

The BBC has produced a series of accessibility guides on how to change your computer and browser settings to make websites more accessible for you.

For example, you can make your computer speak text aloud, make the mouse easier to see, and make your keyboard easier to use. Go to accessibility guides.
