  • Safari: from the 'view' menu select 'zoom in' or 'zoom out' as required.

2. Alternative text

The images on our site have alternative text attributes, sometimes known as 'alt text'. When an image is used to convey information its content is described in the alt text. This means that the image can be understood by text-only browsers and assistive technology such as screen readers.

These are opened using Adobe Reader, if you don't have a copy of this software you can download it here.
