My Computer My Way has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible:
Our developers are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of SCHOLAR and we have developed a new, more accessible version of our learning platform. This is currently under testing.
We have assessed the cost of fixing issues with the present website, which contains over 27,500 content pages. We believe that doing so now, while in development of our new, more accessible platform, would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations. We aim to transition onto our new, more accessible, learning platform by December 2020.
If you are unable to access the content you require due to the limitations of the present website, and would like to access the new website in order to take advantage of the improved accessibility features, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone us on 0131 451 4759.
