We want Care Opinion to be easy to use for everyone.
Care Opinion has a number of accessibility features which may make it easier for you to use.
You can make text bigger or smaller using the text size buttons at the top of each page.
Or you can use the built-in features of your browser. Using a keyboard, usually Ctrl + will make text large and Ctrl - will make text smaller.
Colour and contrast
Our site is available in three colour/contrast themes apart from the default colours.
You can use the colour theme buttons at the top of each page to find a theme which works best for you.
Signed videos (BSL and ISL)
You can watch a signed video about Care Opinion in British Sign Language or Irish Sign Language.
We have developed picture stories in partnership with Talking Mats supported by funding from Life Changes Trust (people affected by dementia programme). We hope that offering people the opportunity to share their stories in pictures and, or words will help more people to have a voice.
Care Opinion can be shown in a range of languages. You can choose a language from the "select language" link at the top of each page.
The translations are done by computer and not by translators. This means that sometimes the translation may not be very good.
Hear stories and responses read to you
Stories, responses, site pages and blog posts can all be read to you out loud if you prefer ("text to speech"). To have text read to you, select the "immersive reader" button which looks like this:
The immersive reader also provides other helpful accessibility features such as font type, font size and text colour selection, text highlighting, and easy read images on demand.
