Making this site easier to see and hear

This website has been designed to conform to the accessibility guidelines set out by the W3C: the international organisation that sets the WAI Accessibility Guidelines for website ease-of-use. It aims to implement all the ‘Level Single-A’ requirements, and the majority of recommendations at ‘Double-A’ and ‘Triple-A levels’.

We strongly recommend using your web browser software (e.g. Internet Explorer etc) ‘maximise window’ or ‘full-screen’ mode, to minimise the distracting effect of other windows, and to allow you to see as much of each page as possible.

If you have a visual impairment, the simplest way to make text more legible is to change the display settings within your web browser software (e.g. Internet Explorer etc). This should allow you to alter the text size ( bigger / smaller) and the colour scheme (for instance to a high-contrast mode).

Thankfully there are some remarkable technologies available free now, to help bring the content of this site within reach of even more people.

If you would prefer to have the content read out loud you can use free text-reading aids such as the SpeakIt! Add-on for the Chrome web browser or you may have your own screen-reading software.

If English is not your first language you can use ‘Google Translate’ to translate the text into different languages using their ‘Translation Browser Buttons’. This includes options for Somali and Urdu, amongst many others.

All links to other pages within the OUR Broomhall site should open in your current browser window, whilst external links should open in a new browser tab.

If you have any problems accessing this site, or any other technical difficulties, please contact us by emailing
