About the TUC


Text only

The TUC site provides a text version for users who prefer fewer graphics and simpler screen rendering and reading. Click on the 'text only' link at the top of most pages.

Accessibility tools

Apart from your existing text only facility, the following additional accessibility functions have been built in.

Page map

A non-visible page map (in the HTML) that lets users (especially those with screen readers) skip to the main content

Text legibility

High contrast text colours in screen readable Verdana font have been used and the main text is scaleable in size. This lets users control the default font size; try the SIZE button in your browser.

Users can override the site style sheets with their own preferences if required.
