    Hi everyone,

    We are always looking at improvements we can make to the boards and to the whole website. And one area that's really important is making things as accessible and as inclusive as possible for you to make sure any young person can use all of Childline.

    We've been testing out an accessibility toolbar and now we'd love as many of you as possible to test it too. This toolbar lets you choose how you want things to be on the site - you can change things like the colour scheme, the text, the font as well as use tools to help those who are neurodiverse and who have visual impairments such as by having content read aloud and having things like a magnifier and dictionary. It can also translate our site into different languages.

    It's not available on the site while it's being tested. But we've added the toolbar to these two test pages below. We'd love you to have a look and try it out (you will see "this is a testing page" then the option to "open accessibility toolbar"). Then, we've you had a chance to use it, we'd love you to fill out our survey to tell us what it was like for you.

    Test pages:

    https://www.childline.org.uk/get-involved/testing/anxiety/

    https://www.childline.org.uk/get-involved/testing/calm-zone/

    Survey:

    https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/BSM2KMY

    Thanks, everyone and you can of course comment here and ask any questions too!

    Take care,

    I thought it was great and could be really useful. I think that being able to change the language is good because people who have come from another country might not be able to speak English very well.

    I think this accessibility toolbar has a lot of potential and could help people with disabilities. It is quite a kind and considerate thing to do.
