    Text Resizing

    If you have a general problem with the size of text on websites (ours and others) there are four ways of increasing the size:

    Change Operating System Preferences

    You can change settings within Windows or Macintosh operating system to increase the size of text used – this makes all text on your computer larger (not just websites)

    Change Browser Preferences

    You can change settings within your browser to increase the default size of “normal” text – this has the effect of enlarging the text on all the websites that you visit (provided those websites have been built in an accessible way)

    Internet Explorer 6

    From the top menu bar, select View and point to Text size

    Internet Explorer 7

    From the menu bar underneath the search field, select Page and point to Text size

    Mozilla, Firefox and most other browsers (PC)

    Hold down the CTRL key and press + Decrease text size: Hold down the CTRL key and press –

    Macintosh (Safari, Firefox and most other browsers)

    Hold down the Command key and press + Decrease text size: Hold down the Command key and press –


    Most browsers offer the ability to enlarge any web-page – the effect is to zoom-in to the page just like enlarging an image. The following browsers support this feature: Mozilla, Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer 8 onwards.

    Web Accessibility Initiative

    This website has been built in accordance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) established by the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C). Although the guidelines aim to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities there are wider benefits to adopting the guidelines as they make sites more user friendly for all.

    W3C Standards

    This site has been built using code compliant with W3C standards for XHTML and CSS. The site displays correctly in current browsers and using standards compliant XHTML/CSS code means any future browsers will also display it correctly.

    All pages use Cascading Style Sheets (CSS2) for presentation, validated using the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C’s) validation service.

    All pages are checked in accordance with Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) guidelines and adhere/comply to these guidelines as far as possible.


    At Hegarty, we are dedicated to continually updating and improving the accessibility of the site and services. We believe it is our responsibility and mutual moral obligation to provide access to all users. As we seek to continually adjust and improve accessibility issues on this site, we also commit to regularly scanning www.hegarty.co.uk with accessibility checker’s scanner. Our goal is to identify and rectify every accessibility barrier on our site. Although we strive to ensure all pages and content on www.hegarty.co.uk are fully accessible, it is possible some website content has not yet been fully adjusted to adhere to the most strict accessibility standards.
