The aim of this accessibility statement is to help users to get the most out of our site by explaining the accessibility features that have been included.

The site has been designed to work with larger text sizes, and the size of the text can easily be changed to suit your needs.

This can be done using your internet browser's toolbar.

Alternatively, the size of the text can be changed using the following key strokes:

  • To increase the page size, press Ctrl and +
  • To decrease the page size, press Ctrl and -
  • To reset the page size, press Ctrl and 0

Page structure
We try to give each page on our site a clear, descriptive heading. The global navigation appears in the same place at the top of every page.  At any point, you can return to the homepage by clicking on the Scottish Opera logo.

All images on the site are given Alternative Text to provide a description of the image for use by screen reader software, or where an image fails to load correctly.

Links between pages are clearly denoted by colour and boldness of text. We try to ensure that a link accurately describes the page it leads to.

PDF files
Some information on our site is held in Portable Document Format (pdf). You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader in order to access these files. Adobe Acrobat Reader can be downloaded free of charge from the Adobe website.

Accessible performances
We provide a number of services for visually impaired patrons such as audio-described performances and touch tours, and can provide information about our operas on tape, in large print format or in Braille.
