The ERIH website has been designed to be accessible to as many people as possible. We pay particular attention to accessibility and usability.

Responsive web design
Our website uses responsive web design so that content is clear and easy to read and automatically adapts to the size and type of output device (desktop, tablet or smartphone).

Font size and contrast
The font size and contrast of the website can be easily changed using the accessibility icon on the right-hand side of the menu bar.

Pages and content can also be zoomed in and out by using a combination of the [Ctrl] key and the +/- key, or by using the mouse wheel. The key combination Control [Ctrl] and zero [0] restores the original font size.

Contrast can be changed through the computer's Control Panel or, on mobile devices, through the Settings menu.

Read aloud feature
ERIH is the first European cultural portal to offer a read aloud feature. This is activated by clicking on the 'Listen' button or the speaker icon. This will bring up the toolbar, which allows you to highlight the area to be read aloud, and to change the volume and speed of the reading. It is also possible to download the text read aloud as an audio file (in mp3 format) for personal use.

The module also offers the option of automatically translating texts into other languages and having them read aloud as well. To do this, right-click on the text and a pop-up menu will appear, from which you can select the language using the "Translation" function.

We are aware that this does not remove all barriers. There is a lack of information in both plain and sign language, and most PDF files and third-party documents are not fully accessible.
