Video and other flash players
Our video players are provide by third parties such a YouTube. Their player can accept some keyboard instructions to opperate the video. Other uses of flash on our site can be to view documents. These are also provided by third parties.
While we cannot be responsible for the level of control you can expect from these providers we have detailed the way you can use your keyboard to control these videos and viewers. We always try to make our content as accessible as possible for all our users and appreciate any feedback you may have for us to improve.
Videos and other flash movies, like the document viewers can be viewed in full screen but you will need to exit full screen, by selecting Escape, in order to use the controls. This is for security reasons as Adobe Flash does not support keyboard access in full screen.
Due to the way browsers and Flash content work together we can only guarantee you can tab into and out of Flash content from HTML in Internet Explorer. Adobe, the creators of Flash, are looking at a solution for this and we are looking at ways we can address this too.
Controlling text and colours in web browsers
Within browsers there are settings that can be chosen to help users view information on this website. Font sizes, styles, colours, and foreground and background colours of web pages displayed on a computer screen can be changed, even if the author of the web page has already specified these. The colour used to indicate links in web pages, or a special colour for links that are used only when the mouse passes over the link, can also be specified by the user. This is useful for users with impaired vision, who may need larger fonts or high-contrast colours.
The authority does not endorse the use of specific browsers. We have tried to ensure that as many of the browsers that are commonly used today have been catered for.
