CAFRE is committed to providing full web accessibility to all users according to the principles of our Equal Opportunities Policy and Student Charter.
We will do this by continuing to developing on-line services including information, news and learning resources for all of our students; past, present and future; as well as other interested parties.
We have made this website as accessible as possible to all users irrespective of the browser being used.
The website has been designed to conform to W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) standards.
Enquiries if you experience any difficulty with the accessibility of the site.
By using a program called Browse Aloud the CAFRE website will become speech enabled. Any visitors with reading difficulties will be able to position the mouse over an area of the web page, which in turn will be spoken out. This program can be downloaded from the Browse Aloud website
Customising the Appearance of the Site
This site is designed according to the recommendations of the Learning Skills Development Agency (LSDA) to ensure accessibility to students with specific learning difficulties. It uses Arial font size 14 in black against a white background to improve readability in the main bodies of text.
You may alter the page font or layout to meet your own requirements. Most browsers allow you to change the font of web sites. Instructions are given below for a range of browsers.
- Internet Explorer (Win) - Go to menu view/text size and select a size. Or you can press Ctrl and use your mouse wheel to select font size.
- Firefox - Go to menu view/text size and select increase or decrease. Or you can press Ctrl and use your mouse wheel to select font size. Firefox can use a much larger rnage of font sizes than internet explorer.
- Opera - Go to menu/zoom and select a percentage zoom size. Or you can press Ctrl and use you mouse wheel to zoom in and out. Opera zooms into the page rather than changing actual font size. This allows the layout to remain unchanged while changing the size of images and text.
- Safari (Mac) - From the Safari menu select Preferences. Click Appearances. To change the font click the appropriate Select button. Use the slider button to change font size.
