Thank you for your patience whilst we carry out this essential maintenance.

Have you heard of the Ease of Access Centre?
You can find the Ease of Access Centre in Settings in Windows 10. There you will find these tools and other options – magnify all or part of the screen, try different colour filters or high-contrast schemes, use Windows Narrator to have things read out to you.
We can provide advice and introductory training on these accessibility tools, just ask at the help desk about booking an appointment. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
