RS weight loss is committed to ensuring that our website is accessible to everyone. We aim to comply with the spirit of the Equality Act, which from October 2010 replaced most of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA), and to follow the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), version 2 (2008).

Using the Tab Key
All forms on this website have a logical tab sequence. You can also use the Tab key on your keyboard to move between links on a page. A single click on Tab highlights the next link; Shift+Tab highlights the previous link.
Customising your View
For help on customising your view of this website, see the BBC’s My Web My Way (an archived page but still lots of useful information) and AbilityNet’s My Computer, My Way. We have tried to make sure our pages have enough contrast, but if any colour combination causes you problems, please let us know.
Changing Text Size
Most browsers feature the ability to resize text on screen to suit your needs. You will usually find this option in the View menu. If you are using a modern browser and have a mouse with a wheel you can often change the size of the text (on PC or Mac) by holding down Ctrl on your keyboard while scrolling with the mouse wheel.
You may find that a more recent browser version offers more options for customising your view. Find the latest versions of popular browsers here:
Links and Downloads
If a link opens in a new window, this will be indicated by the alt text. Links to files (for example PDF files and Microsoft Word documents) always open in a new window. We have tried to make sure that link names are informative and and not repeated on a page. Any document you can download from the site has a link telling you how big it is and what kind it is. To view PDFs, you will need a PDF reader such as Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is available free from the Adobe website. To view a Word document, use Microsoft Word, or one of the Word Viewers available free from the Microsoft site. Alternatively you can use the Open source equivalent, Open Office which is available from Apache.
