Accessibility

This statement applies to the Fast Stream website

How accessible this website is

The Fast Stream website is run by the Fast Stream Recruitment Service within the Cabinet Office. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website.
For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • zoom in up to 400% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate parts of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
