Changing the text size

If you find the text hard to read you wish to make it bigger. There are a few ways you can do this.

In the top right of every page of the website, just above the search box, there is a link that says 'text resize' followed three times by the letter 'A'. If you click on the first A the text will get a bit bigger. Next the next A will make it bigger still, and the third A even bigger.

If you want more control over the text size you can control it through your internet browser.

If you are using Internet Explorer click on the 'view' option in the menu bar that is just underneath the address bar on the browser. A drop down menu will appear and one of the options is called 'text size.' Then just choose whichever text size suites you.

If you are using Mozilla Firefox then click on the 'view' option in the menu bar that is above the address bar in the browser. When the dropdown menu appears choose the 'text size' option and pick whichever text size suits you.
