Additional features have been implemented to aid access to the content on this website when using specialised internet browser software.

All pages on AboutCookies.org are printer-friendly. Only our logo and page content will appear on the printed page, not the navigation menu. The printed text size is 12-point and the font is Times Roman which is easier to read than a sans serif font.

AboutCookies.org has been designed using CSS - no tables or frames of any kind have been used in the design of this website.

All text has a relative font size which means you can resize the text at any time if you want to.

All images have an ALT tag.

Resizing Text

To change the size of text:

Internet Explorer

View > Text Size

Netscape Navigator

Edit > Preferences > Appearance > Fonts


File > Preferences > Fonts > Minimum font size

Alternatively, if you have a mouse with a wheel, hold down the CTRL key on your keyboard whilst moving the wheel forward, to increase text size, or backward, to reduce text size.

Access Keys

AboutCookies.org does not use keyboard shortcuts for site navigation. We took this decision in response to guidance from disabled users who find keyboard shortcuts an additional and unnecessary burden. Screen reader technologies already incorporate keyboard shortcuts and Access Keys added to a website actually replicate or interfere with those shortcuts. The WCAG v1.0 does recommend the use of Access Keys (checkpoint 9.5) but in light of the reasons given above we have decided to look forwards to the WCAG v2.0 where the implementation of Access Keys is not a featured checkpoint.
