Take a different look at the BBC web through MyDisplay

The BBC have created an easy-to-use configuration tool that allows you to view all of its web content in a format that suits you.

The tool is called MyDisplay and you can read about it and switch it on from here.

MyDisplay offers a number of preset page themes suited to a wide range of potential users via an easy to use menu page. The ability to create your own custom theme is also available.

Although this is only a trial at the moment, I believe that this tool will become a fixture that will help many people gain better access to the web.

This level of accessibility raises the bar for other web developers – particularly those that espouse inclusion. I would like to see Glow Futures incorporate this level of support for the learners in our schools.

About Alan Stewart

I'm a teacher who changed direction after teaching visually impaired pupils. I became interested in how technology could assist young people overcome or deal with various disabilities. I've, since, been an Education Support Officer, an ICT Training Support Officer, and have been Coordinator of Highland's Assistive Technology Support Service for the past 20 years. I'm also the proud father of two young boys (2003 & 2008). View all posts by Alan Stewart
