Making our website accessible to youMarie Curie Cancer Care believes it is vital that everyone should be able to get the best out of our website, even if they are not a technical expert, or have any physical reason why using the internet can be challenge. We have designed our website to be as accessible as possible in accordance with guidelines laid down by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI), and will continue to make changes over time.
Improving our websiteWe support the WAI initiative to encourage website users to contact us if they feel improvements could be made to its accessibility. Further information about this can be found on the WAI website here http://www.w3.org/WAI/users/inaccessible and Marie Curie Cancer Care can be contacted here.
Help with using websitesThere are some very simple changes that you can make to your computer that can make it easier to see, hear, understand or use websites on the internet as well as other programmes on your computer, such as Word for Windows, You can change the text size, colours, using a magnifier, use your keyboard instead of the mouse or make your mouse easier to use, as well as other things.
A few simple instructions are listed below, but much more information and instructions can be found on the BBC website: My Web My Way http://www.bbc.co.uk/accessibility/index.shtml which also lists links to other information that may be helpful.
