Find out more about the ways we have made our website accessible to everyone.

At the Royal Institution, we are committed to making our website accessible to everyone.

This website has been built to conform to WCAG 2.0 (level AA) wherever possible, although multi-media content may conform to a lower standard.

This 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 our websites using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of our websites using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of our websites using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We aim to provide closed captions alongside all Ri-produced videos.

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

Our text size can be adjusted via options in your browser's 'View' or 'Page' menu.

This can also be done via your keyboard:

  • PC users: Select 'Ctrl' and '+' or '–'
  • Mac Users: Select 'Cmd' and '+' or '–'

Some of the resources on the website are available to view or download in Portable Document Format (PDF) and Microsoft Word.

You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to read PDF files, which can be downloaded for free from the Adobe website.
