If you find it difficult to read the website because of the text colour, you can choose between three levels of contrasts by clicking on one of the three ‘A’ letters found by the word 'Contrast' on the left hand side of your screen (above the 'Home' button). To change the text colour back to the lighter shade click on the first ‘A’ by the word 'Contrast'.
