Accessibility

Bupa is committed to providing all of our users with equal access to our information.

With accessibility as an integral and essential aspect of the design and build of our websites, we employ universal design principles that ensures our web pages can be viewed and navigated effectively by all of our users, independent of the device they are using.

Show Customising our Bupa websites

Bupa website pages are designed so that you can change the style, size and colour of the font used, as well as the background colour. If you wish to do so, please see the guides below.

Customising settings in:

Firefox

Internet Explorer

Show Navigating our Bupa websites

Our websites contain many links to useful information which are either coloured dark red or underlined to make them easily noticeable. Links to non-Bupa websites and downloadable files such as PDF and Word will open in new windows. When your mouse hovers over these links, a short descriptive text box will appear, notifying you that a new window will be opened.

For non-mouse users and those that use screen readers, Bupa website pages can be accessed using your standard keyboard shortcuts and links are made as descriptive as possible.

Show Speech-enabled technology

All Bupa websites are speech-enabled with a programme called Browsealoud.

When you hover your mouse over text, Browsealoud will read it out and, as each word is spoken, it is also highlighted. You can change the accent, tone, speed and pitch of the voice and you can also alter the pronunciation of words.

Download the free Browsealoud program
