Themes
We also offer several alternative themes (with different styles and colours) in the hope that you can find one that suits you if the default theme is not helping you to view the site.

Browsealoud
Our website is speech enabled which means that we provide free access to a screen-reader for those visitors who have reading difficulties.

Reading large amounts of text on screen can be difficult for those with literacy and visual impairments. Browsealoud reads web pages aloud for people who find it difficult to read online.

You can download Browsealoud for free by clicking Browsealoud

Once the software has been installed on your computer you will be able to listen to any website that has subscribed to the Browsealoud service.
