Finding your way around
We try to design our websites so it’s easy for you to find the information you need. If you get stuck, you’ll find help pages, site maps and contacts pages in most of our sites.
Even fully-sighted people can find reading text on a screen difficult or tiring, so we have chosen an easy-to-see web colour scheme and a clear font type, size and colour.
If you use a screen reader
Not everyone navigates websites in the same way, so we’ve designed our sites to work with screen readers. We use text (in ALT tags) to describe images. We use descriptive links (e.g. More about mortgages instead of Click here) so you know where the link takes you, and we don’t use frames which are difficult for screen readers and special browsers to interpret.
