We want our jobsite to be as easy to use as possible for everyone, whether you have a disability or not. This page should answer any questions you may have on this issue.
Advice specific to our jobsite is available below, but if you have any accessibility issues, AbilityNet provides guidance on:
• How to make your mouse easier to use
• How to use your keyboard instead of a mouse
• How to talk to your device
• How to make your device talk to you
• How to make text larger
• How to change your colours
• How to magnify the screen
In addition, my web my way on the BBC website provides accessibility help, enabling computer users to make the most of the internet, whatever their ability or disability.
Most tablets and smartphones have built in accessibility functions, which are normally found under 'settings'.
These functions allow you to change things such as font size, font style, contrast and screen brightness, as well as offering ‘text to speech’ options. Features will vary depending upon the make and model of your device.
We aim to use plain language and avoid jargon at all times, so that the content on our site is easy to understand. To help us do this, we follow Plain English guidelines.
However, there are occasions where this is not the case, for example where a featured job requires language specific to the role.
