This accessibility statement applies to the course webpages for Machine Learning and Pattern Recognition that have addresses beginning with mlpr.inf.ed.ac.uk/.
This website is run by the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh. 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 200% without the text spilling off the screen (not including computer code, which sometimes requires horizontal scrolling at any zoom level)
- navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
- navigate most 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.
