Using the website
To help us make the Barclays website a positive place for everyone we're always looking for ways to make our websites and online services easier to use. We’ve developed standards based on the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA and recommendations made by the Royal National Institute for the Blind (RNIB).
Changing your computer of device settings
Your web browser has lots of settings that you can change to alter the way you see, hear or use a website.
If you want to make your computer or device easier to use, we’ve created a site with disability charity AbilityNet to show you how to do so – useful whether you’re using a mobile device or a computer that runs Windows, Mac OSX, iOS or Android.
Finding your way around
We design our websites so it's easy for you to find the information you need. If you get stuck, try our regional FAQ page or sitemap. Even fully-sighted people can find reading text on a screen tiring, so we have chosen an easy-to-see web colour scheme and a clear font type, colour and size.
If you use a screen reader
Not everyone navigates websites in the same way, so we've designed our sites to work with screen readers. We use text (in ALT tags) to describe images. We’ve included descriptive links so you know where the link takes you, and we don't use frames that are difficult for screen readers and special browsers to interpret.
If you need to print a page in this site you'll find that your browser's Print function works perfectly well. Some sites will only print some of the text on a page, or will output cropped pages when you try to print them, but this site has been tailored to print correctly. Choose file > print preview in your browser's menu to see for yourself. You'll notice that to improve clarity, none of the navigation objects or other elements which are superfluous to a printed version will be printed.
