    • read all of the form carefully before attempting to fill it in
    • when you do fill the form in you may find it more useful to turn Virtual PC Cursor off if you are using the screen reader JAWS version 3.3 or above
    • once you have filled the form in, turn Virtual PC Cursor back on and check what you have entered - then submit the form

    If you have problems dealing with forms online please contact the IT Service Desk on 01483 216666.

    Changing browser settings

    To set Internet Explorer to ignore the colours and fonts used in web sites, first go to the 'Tools' menu and choose 'Internet Options'. Then click on the 'Accessibility' button, then tick the 'ignore colours', 'ignore font styles' and 'ignore font sizes' boxes. Then click OK to apply the settings.

    To change just the size of text go to 'View - text size' and choose the setting you are most comfortable with (largest, larger, medium, smaller, smallest).

    You may also find it useful to change the default colours and fonts used on your computer. The procedure for doing this is different for different versions of Windows and other operating systems. You should therefore consult your computer's Help facility for instructions on doing this.
