We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability.

We now have the ReciteMe tool bar that gives you a range of tools to help your experience on the site.

We have introduction to epilepsy booklets in Urdu, Ukrainian, Bengali, Polish and Romanian.

We also have audio files of our ‘easy-read’ content.

We are actively trying to increase the accessibility and usability of our website and in doing so adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines.

We now have an accessibility toolbar (called Recite Me) on our website.
