Accessibility Toolbar

We have added a new accessibility and language toolbar to our website to make it welcoming and inclusive for as many people as possible. St Wilfrid’s is accessible to everyone so we want to make sure that our website reflects this by incorporating this new accessibility toolbar that allows anyone to access and use our website in the way that best suits them, whether it be in a different language or in a different font type.

How do I access the accessibility toolbar?

You can open the toolbar by clicking on the Accessibility Button, that looks like this:

This Accessibility button appears on the right hand side of your screen and is always present on every page of our website. After you click on the button the toolbar opens and displays a range of different options for customising how the website looks and how you can access the content.

How does the accessibility tool help me on this website?

The toolbar helps people accessing our website to do the things they need to do, like finding information on our services, reading blogs and seeing our upcoming events

It has a unique range of functions. You can use it to:

  • Have the text on our website read aloud
  • Download the text as an MP3 file to play it where and when it suits you
  • Change font sizes and colours
  • Customise background colour
  • Translate text into more than 100 different languages
  • Access a fully integrated dictionary and thesaurus
