Access our website easily

  • Our website is compatible with screen readers and allows internet browsers to ‘zoom in’ to help those with a visual impairment.
  • Most computers have built in options to make information easier to access by people with low vision, or no vision. RNIB have lots of information about how you can make your computer more accessible, including how to change the font size, or mouse pointer size, and how to access ‘screen readers’ which speak the on-screen information to you.
  • You can ‘Google translate’ the pages on our website, depending on your internet security connections. You would need to enter the Asthma UK site URL and choose your translation option.
