This website can also be navigated by keyboard only. Navigation is done using the Tab key. Each press moves the focus to the next item. The element which is currently active has a box around it. In order to activate the link in focus, press Enter on the keyboard.
The first link which becomes active in this way is hidden from the normal user and is specifically designed for keyboard navigators. The name of the link is ‘Skip to the main content’. This link skips the header and the left panel and jumps to the main content of the page.

In Windows 7, you will find a program called Magnifier when you press the Start menu button down on the left, type Magnifier (the first few letters are enough) and press Enter. A small window will open with everything enlarged. By default, the program tracks the mouse cursor position.
To open this program in Windows 10, click on the Windows key down on the left and at the same time press the plus (+) key as many times as you want to enlarge the content. To reduce the size of the content, press the Windows key and the minus (-) key simultaneously.
To enlarge websites on Apple computers, you must navigate as follows: Apple menu > System Preferences > Accessibility (or Universal Access) > Zoom.
Web browsers have plug-ins which enable enlargement of websites and add to the existing functionality of the browser. For example, ‘Zoom Page’ for Firefox, which enables you to enlarge the entire page or only the text, and AutoZoom for Chrome.
