Accessibility Statement for Library Website

This website is run by the University of Huddersfield's Library Services. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this site. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the site using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the site using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the site using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We have also tried to make the site text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
