Accessibility Statement

The Citizen Scientist Project is committed to supporting accessibility on the Web. Every effort has been made to ensure that this website is as accessible as possible, based on recognised accessibility guidelines and standards.  To aid those users who have disabilities, the pages of this website contain various accessibility features.

At the top of each page is an accessibility tool bar which make it easier to make changes to the website so that it is easier to read.


The icon Text Size: A A A allows the size of the text to be made larger or smaller simply by clicking onto one of the letters


For some people, lots of graphics and images on a website makes it difficult to read.  By clicking on the word Low Graphics, you will find a version of the website that is text only with graphics and images removed.


Changing the background colour can sometimes make a website more accessible for people with problems reading on a white background.  By clicking one of the icons next to the words High Contrast:  you will be able to change the background colour of the website.
