Web Accessibility

The Dundee Heritage Trust website has been created with accessibility in mind and there are a number of tools built into your web browser to adapt our website and others to suit your specific needs.


Text size

The best way to alter text size on the web is by using your browser tools. Below is a reference on how to do this for an example few browsers:

  • Internet Explorer: Select the “View” menu, then “Text size”
  • Firefox: Select the “View” menu, then “Zoom” or “Zoom text only”
  • Internet Explorer and Firefox: In both browsers, if you are using a mouse with a scroll wheel, you can increase and decrease the text size by holding down the ‘Ctrl’ key and rotating the wheel. You can also hold down the ‘Ctrl’ key and press ‘+’ to increase or ‘-‘ to decrease the text size.
  • Safari: Select the “View” menu, then “Make text bigger” or “Make text smaller”
  • Opera: Select the “View” menu, then “Zoom”
  • Google Chrome: hold down the ‘Ctrl’ key and press ‘+’ to increase or ‘-‘ to decrease the text size. ‘0’ resets back to the default size
