Accessibility

This accessibility statement applies to the entire bps.org.uk domain.

This website is run by The British Psychological Society.

Our web site has been designed to provide a standard layout and navigation throughout the site and to work with all of the most recent versions of mainstream computer operating systems and web browsers, which now include many features designed to help users access web pages to suit them.

We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • Change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • Zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • Navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • Navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • Listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible:

  • You cannot modify the line height or spacing of text
