  • Making the text bigger
    You may be able to change the text size in your browser.
  • Change the colours
    We’ve tried to use colours that make the words on our webpages easy to read, but we know that some people have trouble with reading text on certain colours. You may be able to use your own colours with your browser.
  • Document downloads
    For documents provided in PDF or Word document format, you may need to install some free software:
    If you can’t open PDF documents, download the latest Adobe Reader software.
    If you can’t open Word documents, download the latest Word viewer software.
  • Alternative formats
    If you want any information on this site in an alternative format please email info@my-life.org.uk with your details, and tell us what you need. If it’s easier, you can call us instead.
  • Images
    To make things easier for screen reader users, all images in our site have alternative text that clearly describes what they show.
  • Links
    Our links always use link text that makes sense out of context, so that what we’re linking to is clear to everyone.
  • Video
    We use YouTube for our videos because it’s the most accessible way to present videos online that we know of, however, we cannot control the accessibility of YouTube video functionality.
  • Visual design
    This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout. If your browser or browsing device does not support style sheets, the content of each page is designed to be still readable.
