Guidance on how to improve accessibility and customise your settings for internet browsers
Internet Explorer remains the browser most compatible with assistive software. Internet Explorer can be used without plugins, but most websites and applications no longer actively support the browser, so you may need to use an alternative. Accessibility features and customisation in Edge, Chrome, Firefox and Safari may require you to install specific plugins. This is simple and easy to do on your own device, however please note this is not possible on the University laboratory machines, as users do not hold administrative rights
Advice on making your device easier to use

Navigation aids for screen readers
If you are using a screen reader or speaking browser, we have special links on every page to help you navigate faster. These are often called ‘skip links’.
These menus will be read out to you. If you are not using assistive software, you will not see these links.
