Using a screen reader for speech

This web site is designed to be readable by screen readers, and we are continuously improving the content to be as accessible as possible.

A screenreader is a software application that interprets what is being shown a computer screen and relays it to the user with text-to-speech, sound icons, or a Braille output device. Screenreaders are often used by people who are blind, visually impaired or learning disabled.

We do not offer a screen reading service directly, but we can suggest visiting the Action for the Blind website for more information about a number of free screen readers available to the visually impaired.
