Site Accessibility

 

Based on user feedback from visitors to our site, we are taking steps to make our site more accessible to those who find our font size too small. Part of this process is to educate everyone on getting the most from their Web Browser, whether you are using Internet Explorer, FireFox, or another.

When using a computer we must accept the fact that some things are technical, but we will try to make this as clear as we can with step by step instructions.

  1. Changing Screen Resolution
  2. Changing Text Size
  3. Changing Page Magnification

 

Your Screen (Monitor) Resolution

Screen resolution refers to the clarity of the text and images on your screen. This is a setting on your computer. At higher resolutions, items appear sharper. They also appear smaller, so more items fit on the screen. At lower resolutions, fewer items fit on the screen, but they are larger and easier to see. At very low resolutions, however, images might have jagged edges.

For example, 800 x 600 is a lower screen resolution, and 1600 x 1200 is a higher one. CRT monitors generally display a resolution of 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768. LCD monitors can better support the higher resolutions. Whether you can increase your screen resolution depends on the size and capability of your monitor and the type of video card you have. Widescreen LCD monitors typically have only one or two resolutions to choose from that still maintain the correct proportions. Oh dear -- this is getting too technical already, but please read on.

This website (as are many others) is best viewed at a screen resolution of 1024 x 768. A higher resolution will allow you to see more on your Desktop but will make the text size smaller. Conversely, a lower resolution will increase the text size but you may need to scroll more when using your browser to view websites.
