Text on this page is designed to be larger than elsewhere on the site, but you can manually change the size of the text you see on any page. These instructions are for Internet Explorer 6 for Windows. Most systems have similar features.
Go to "View", then "Text Size" from the top menu bar. Try a "Medium" setting before deciding whether you'd prefer another size. You might need to change your setting as you browse other websites.
For further help, see the BrowseAloud website for details of software to convert text into speech.
