Fonts and text

Research has shown that sans-serif fonts (i.e. those without ornamented letters, such as Arial) are easier for those with visual impairments to read.  As such, we aim to use these sorts of fonts in our site.  We also recognise that you may prefer to increase or decrease the overall size of the text when viewing web pages; our site is fully compatible with this and does not fix the size of the text at all. Internet Explorer 9 does provide this option - go to View > Text Size and choose from the options there.  For more comprehensive control, try using a browser such as Firefox, Google Chrome Opera or Internet Explorer 12
