The Dock Accessibility Statement

The Dock has been designed and developed with careful consideration for the needs of all of its users. The following statement of accessibility gives guidance on the accessibility of The Dock and aims to help ensure all users can enjoy the site.

Find the right assistive technology to customise this site to your needs

While The Dock site has been created to be usable ‘as is’, many people may benefit from tailoring their user experience to their specific needs by customising their computer. For example, to have the site spoken to them, to change its colour-scheme, or increase the size of its fonts.

If that sounds like it would be useful to you, we recommend you visit BBC My Web, My Way to watch videos of how these customisations – either using accessibility features of your computer or through installing assistive technologies – might suit you.

If you are a young person having difficulties with the website, we recommend talking to a friend, adviser or parent and asking them to work with you, or help you to pick the right assistive technology.
