Our aim is to provide a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of disability, capability or technology. We work hard to ensure our web content remains accessible and user friendly for all.

Recite me

We want to make our website work for everyone. So, to help you to read and understand our products and services, we’ve added a tool called Recite me to our website.

Recite me allows you to change how things appear on our website. You can:

  • turn text from web pages and PDFs into sound, make the text bigger or smaller, change the colour, and the colour of the webpage
  • choose a different font, including Open-Dyslexic
  • highlight words and find their definition
  • add guides and rulers and make other changes to images, text size and settings.

Simply press the ‘AA Accessibility’ button at the top right of your screen, and the Recite me toolbar will appear at the top of the page. You can then click on the different options and change the appearance of the web pages – making it easier to read for specific audiences.

It will work on every page on The People’s Pension website, and on all devices too (mobile, laptop, desktop). And if you make any adjustments, Recite me saves your setup automatically for the next time you open it.

If, for whatever reason, you’d prefer to not to use the Recite me tool, you can change the text throughout this website through your browser settings.

To find out more about the Recite me toolbar take a look at the Recite me user guide.

General structure

This site uses semantic structure to define content. Tables are only used for tabular data, not presentation. Headings use heading tags which JAWS users may use shortcuts such as ALT+ INSERT+ 2 to find the next level 2 heading. Acronyms and abbreviations have been explained.


Text throughout this website can be enlarged or reduced to suit your preference.

For example:

  • Google Chrome users – select Customise and Control > Settings > Appearance > Page Zoom or Font size
  • Microsoft Edge users – select Settings and More > Settings > Appearance > Page Zoom or Font size.
  • Firefox users – select View > Text Size > Increase or Decrease.
  • Safari users – select View > Make Text Bigger or Make Text Smaller.

Style sheets

This site uses cascading style sheets for presentation. If your browser or internet device does not support style sheets, the use of semantic mark-up ensures that the content of each page is still readable and clearly structured.

You may also use your own styles to view this site, for example:

  • Google Chrome users – select Customize and Control > Settings > Appearance or Accessibility
  • Microsoft Edge users – select Settings and More > Settings > Appearance or Accessibility
  • Firefox users – select Tools > Options… > Content > Fonts & Colours.

Our print style sheet ensures all meaningful content will print clearly from each page and functional controls, such as menus have been removed.
