Amending font size

To change the size of the text, hold down the ctrl key on the bottom left hand row of the key board whilst using the scroll wheel on the mouse to increase (or decrease) the size of the text and picture. Alternatively you can use the + (plus) and - (minus) keys whilst holding down the ctrl key.

Change appearance

If you have any difficulty in reading the content of the site in its default design you may want to switch to using the text only version of the page.

  1. Click on the Text Only link at the top of any website page which will take you to a text only version of the page. 
  2. Use the links at the top of the page to switch between Light Theme (black text on white background) and Dark Theme (white text on dark background) and change text size.

Whichever theme you choose it will be maintained as you navigate through the site.

To return back to the default design version of the site click on the Graphical Version link at the top of the page at any time.

Translate using Google Translator

Google Translator provides an easy way to translate web pages into a variety of languages. Simply select the require language from the drop down list.

Shortcuts on keyboard

Keyboard shortcuts control various functions and are often a useful and quick way of navigating through a site. For the vast majority of web browsers, using the Tab key (arrows showing left and right, normally located near Q) to navigate forward through links (use Shift + Tab to go backwards), and Enter to activate the link. Many other keys can be used, and will vary depending on the user browser version.

Images

We have avoided using excessive graphics within the website where possible to ensure quick download times and access to information which cannot be read if in image format. Where images have been used we have added 'Alt' tags - text alternatives so that you will still know what the image is meant to convey even if it does not load

PDF Documents

This site uses PDF (Adobe Acrobat) file format for the publication of large and complex documents, such as in shortlists. Please note that Adobe Acrobat documents can be converted back to plain text using Adobe's Web-based conversion service. This enables Mac user to view content with ease
