Accessibility is the word used to describe whether a product such as a website can be used by people of all abilities and disabilities.

If English is not your first language, there is also a language bar where you can change the language of the site.
Please note that the spellcheck feature is browser specfic, the spellcheck function is known to work in Chrome. Alternative browsers may need an additional add-on or plug-in enabled.
If you require interpretation through British Sign Language then please visit this page to see how the City of York Council can help.

In general, your browser will be made up of the following basic tools:
The address bar tells you the unique location (or address) of the website and web page you are currently looking at.
You can type website addresses directly into this bar.
Back and forward buttons
Your browser will have some arrow shaped buttons, often in the top left near the address bar.
These buttons let you move backward and forward between pages you have already visited.
When you open pages, your browser will display a button with a cross in it. This button lets you close the particular tab.
If you only have one tab open, pressing this button will often close the browser.
