Accessibility settings

The internet is awash with millions of websites at your fingertips with the click of a mouse, but sometimes you are unable to navigate around easily if the text on websites just isn't big or clear enough. On the Welfare Scotland website we have installed a piece of software by Userway which allows you to select a comfortable font, font size and allows you to have the text read aloud without the need for a screen reader.

You can use the accessibility software free of charge and with no need to sign up. Simply click on the white stick person logo show in the right-hand side of the screen.

The logo looks like this:  Accessibility options logo. Shown in blue.
