This part of the Scottish Archives for Schools (SAfS) website offers advice on how to get the most out of the site.
The site has been designed to be accessible to users and by as wide a range of web browsers and computers as possible. If you have any problems using the site let us know by emailing [email protected]
The site has been designed to meet government guidelines on accessibility. There are things you can do at home to change the way pages look and function if necessary.
Changing the font size
Almost all text on the site is relative: that is, text size is displayed in sizes which are a percentage of your browser's default setting. You can make the font sizes bigger or smaller by using the font size commands on your Web browser.
Most pages have been designed to make printing easy, by using the print icon at the top right hand corner of the page or by using the printing commands on your web browser. Some information in the site (such as lengthy documents, or items where some degree of printing control is required) is provided in pdf format, which requires your computer to have Acrobat Reader installed. This is available free from Adobe.
Icons, symbols and images used on the site
All icons, and other graphics files used on this site should have alternative text tags. The use of icons and decorative images has been kept to a minimum to maximise download speed and accessibility to sight impaired users.
