Accessibility Statement

Help with using this website and accessibility features

Mid Devon District Council endeavours to make this website as accessible as possible to everyone, including those with disabilities and those who use assistive technologies to browse the web. Some of the ways in which we strive to achieve this are as follows:

Changing colours, font, text size and other settings

All modern browsers allow you to change colours and font sizes. We’ve tried to create a site which doesn’t get in the way when you change these settings.

For advice on changing settings, check out the BBC’s accessibility pages.

You can choose your operating system (e.g Windows), your Browser (e.g Internet Explorer) and the problem you’re trying to fix. You’ll then get lots of relevant advice on accessibility settings.

Screen readers

A screen reader is a program which reads out the information displayed on your computer to you. Screen Readers can be useful to enable blind and partially sighted people to browse the internet and carry out other tasks using their computer.

There are a variety of Screen Readers available via the internet. The following websites contain information regarding accessibility software and resources:

Plain English

We try to write in plain English and avoid jargon. If you don’t understand something, please let us know. If you would like to translate the website text to another language use the option at the bottom of the website “Select language”.
