Video content

We upload our video to YouTube and then embed the content into our web pages. You can read YouTube instructions for assistive technologies on Google's support pages.

Where possible we upload transcripts to create captions on YouTube. The captions can be turned on and off using the video controls. Where it's not possible, we have linked to a web page containing the transcript.

Text-to-speech

Each page has a link to 'Listen to this page', usually in the top left hand corner, leading to a dixerIT toolbar. This allows you to have text or just links read to you.
