The Commission is working to make the website as accessible as possible for users. To help us, we follow guidelines recommended by the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) and World Wide Web Consortium’s web access initiative.

The Commission's website strives to be as accessible and usable as possible for all users and therefore doesn't have a separate accessibility statement as the site has been designed and developed with this in mind.

We aim for to be compatible with recent versions of commonly used:

  • screenreaders
  • speech recognition software
  • browser screen magnifiers
  • speech and other assistive technology built into computer and smartphone operating systems.


If you have a vision impairment then please visit the RNIB website for specialist advice such as alternative screen readers, screen magnifiers and other devices that are available and can make using a computer easier.

My Computer My Way was developed by AbilityNet with support from Microsoft and the BBC as a source of accessibility help for all computer users.

This resource explains all the accessibility features available in popular desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones, including Windows, Mac OSX, iOS, Android and Windows Phone. All of these devices have features that enable people to adapt their computer to suit their needs, such as changing the colours and text size or using voice activation.
