This website is run by East West Railway Company. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • zoom in up to 200% without the text spilling off the screen or generating unwanted scrollbars.
  • 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.

There are lots of things you can do on your computer to make web pages more accessible for you. For example, you can:

  • magnify your screen
  • change text size and colours
  • make your mouse easier to use
  • use screen readers and talking browsers

If you need help doing these things, you’ll find clear and helpful guidance on the BBC’s My web my way. Another website giving good accessibility information is AbilityNet.
