Customise this Site
To aid site accessibility we've implemented certain features throughout our site. This page briefly explains how to use these features. For more information about accessible website design, please see our Web Accessibility page. To learn about the services we offer in the field of web accessibility, see our Accessibility Consultancy page.
Re-sizable text: To increase the size of the text (including headings, menus, links and forms) simply press the large 'A' in the 'Customise this Site' menu in the header (in the top right corner of the page). Pressing this button resizes the text one level; to further increase the text size simply press the button again. To reset the text size to normal, press the medium sized 'A'. To decrease the text size press the small 'A'. The text size and alignment is stored on your computer using a cookie, so next time you come to our site it will remember your choice of text size and alignment.
Access Keys: Some links (text, images or buttons that link to other pages or sites on the web) on the MicroAngelo website are assigned access keys allowing easier keyboard navigation of the website.

The reason for not assigning access keys to every page on the site is simple: we don't want to overload you with too much information (or too many things to remember). You can navigate to each section of the site using access keys, then use the Tab button to navigate to the pages without access keys.
