Website accessibility

Text size and simplify

You can use the 'simplify' option to remove images from pages and reposition side bar items to the bottom of the page. This makes the pages text only.

Once the site has been simplified, you will be given options to increase and decrease the size of the text on the pages by selecting the 'A' symbols. These features are best utilised on text content pages and the carers directory listings.  

You cannot increase the text size on the site without first selecting simplify. This is to ensure that the design and layout of the site isn't compormised by changing the text size.

However, if you prefer to keep the images and side bar items visible,  you can use your device's zoom feature to increase or decrease the text size:

The above table was developed by Derbyshire Community Health Services. 


Use the contrast switcher at the top of each website page to adjust the colours of the background and the text font. You can choose from two settings, high contrast (white text on a black background) and dyslexia (black text on a lilac background).

Or you can use the 'advanced options' to tailor the colours on the background, text and hyperlinks to suit your needs. 


Many smartphones and tablets have software built in that will read the information on the screen out loud. Check your device's instructions to see if it has this feature.
