Accessibility Statement for MyReading

MyReading is the University of Huddersfield's reading list system. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this system. 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)

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

The student interface for MyReading was redesigned in the summer of 2020 to make it visually similar to Brightspace. The following statement is applicable to the redesigned student interface.
