This page contains information on changing the look of the Acceleris website to make it easier to read and what to do if English is not your first language.

A ‘web safe’ font has been used throughout this website, which means that the text should look the same no matter what device or browser you use.

The website is responsive, which means the layout alters to fit your screen size, whether you are using a desktop computer, tablet or mobile phone.

About the four 'A's at the top of each page - for visually impaired visitors
