Mobile TV World is committed to producing a website and web resources that can be accessed by all users.
Most of the web pages on this site are rendered visually as 3 distinct parts:
- A header area that includes main navigation links
- A middle area for the main content
Additionally, the middle area on some pages may be split left and right to partition content. When styles are not applied to a document or when using a screen reader, sections are read in the above order.
These allow you to move around a website without having to use a mouse. Unfortunately, there is no set standard for key meanings which vary from site to site, in addition to this, access key attributes can mask out the functionality of a browser's predefined keyboard control, which is often much more important than page-specific access keys.
While there are advantages to using access keys, we are of the opinion that these are outweighed by the disadvantages and for that reason have refrained from using them.
Sizing Text or Page Zooming
Most major browsers support text resizing in one form or another.
- In Internet Explorer 6 and Firefox 2, Text Size options are available from the View menu - Text Size.
- In Internet Explorer 7 and 8, the Text Size option is available from the Page menu - Text Size.
- In Firefox 3, the Text Size option is available from the View menu - Zoom .
- In Opera use the keyboard shift with + keys to zoom in and the - key to zoom out or use the View menu - Zoom.
Firefox, Safari, Chrome and Internet Explorer versions 7 and above also support zooming the entire page. Type control with + to zoom in or control with - to zoom out, control with zero to reset. Firefox and Safari give the option of using these keys to zoom everything or just the text.
If you require more detailed instruction on changing text size or how to adjust your browser accessibility settings to best suit your needs, the BBC provides comprehensive guidance on this and other related topics on their website.

We strive to ensure that pages on this site meet industry standards:
- We are working hard to ensure compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines produced by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C)
- That pages validate to XHTML 1.0 Transitional
- That pages use structured semantic markup. For example,
H1 tags are used for main content headings and
H2-4 tags for section or sub headings, which means that screen readers can quickly navigate the document structure via document headings
