The Harlow Council Website has been designed with accessibility in mind. The website is constructed using Drupal.

Document help for people with visual disabilities

Adobe Accessibility is a resource designed to help people with visual disabilities work more effectively with Acrobat software. Please visit the Adobe website for further information:


Where images have been used we have added 'Alt' tags - text alternatives so that you can still read what the image is meant to convey if you are using something like a screen reader to read the web page rather than view.

Text resize

We have been careful to make sure that we haven't fixed the size of the textual information on the web site so that visitors who wish to can alter the font size on the screen to make it easier to read.

There are text resize buttons within the ROKTalk toolbar (Text to Speech) at the top right of every web page to increase or decrease font size. It is also possible to increase the size of the whole website by holding down the Ctrl key on the bottom left hand row of the keyboard whilst using the scroll wheel on the mouse to increase (or decrease) the size of the page.
