  • Zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • Navigate most of the application using just a keyboard
  • Navigate most of the application using speech recognition software
  • Listen to most of the application using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We've also made the web application text as simple as possible to understand.
