Information regarding barrier-free access

  • The texts of this website are suitable for the use of a screen reader. The language was simplified as much as possible.
  • Zoom function in modern browsers: Especially for people with limited vision, modern browsers such as Mozilla Firefox, Opera or Google Chrome provide for very good enlargement options. Modern browsers allow you a practical magnification of web pages via the so-called zoom function. With the help of these browsers, the content displayed can be magnified by up to 1000 percent. Particularity: Not only the text, but rather all elements such as graphics and images can be magnified. To do so, select the item “View” from the menu bar and specify the zoom factor. This adjustment can be performed both with the keyboard and with the mouse. 
  • How to zoom with the keyboard: You can very easily carry out this adjustment with your keyboard. All modern browsers allow for the following key combinations. The keys must be pushed concomitantly:
    [ CTRL and + ] Zoom in [ CTRL and - ] Zoom out [ CTRL and 0 ] Normal view (100%) 
  • How to zoom with the mouse: In the menu of your browser, select the commands: “View”, “Zoom”, “Zoom in” or
    “Zoom out”. The function is the same in all modern browsers, but the naming of the menu commands may differ in part. They are, in any case, self-explanatory. If you are using a mouse with a scroll wheel (a.k.a. a wheel mouse), hold the CTRL key down and move the scroll wheel. This is how you can zoom the view in and out. The Opera browser provides you with the option to adjust your view in increments of ten. You achieve such a 10% increase of the zoom level by pushing the + key, and a corresponding decrease of the zoom level by pushing the – key. To return to the normal view, push the
    6 key. The options of operation to switch back and forth between an author mode and a user mode should not remain unmentioned. Numerous pre-set view options, from high contrast to the view for small screen, provide optimal settings comfort for virtually any user. In Internet Explorer, a zoom function has existed since version 7. The view of a web page can be zoomed into or out of therewith. In the process, all contents of the page are adjusted: Text and images.
    An adjustment is possible from 10% to 1000%. 
  • This is how to do it via the “Change zoom level” button: Located at the bottom right of the Internet Explorer scree is the “Change zoom level” button. Click on the arrow towards the right of the button. Now you can use pre-set zoom levels. To do so, click on the desired percentage stated. You can also specify the zoom level yourself. To do so, click on “Custom...”. In the “Percentage zoom” field, you can now enter a zoom value. Then click on “OK”. If you simply click on the “Change zoom level” button, you can quickly switch between the level 100%, 125% and 150%. 
  • Magnification function of older browsers without zoom function: Even if you are using older versions of Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer, a very good magnification function is available to you. It does, however, not take into consideration graphics or images. Mozilla & Firefox: To do so, select the menu item “View” via the browser menu bar and specify the size of the writing in percent. Any easier way is to use the keyboard commands [ STRG and + ] for zooming in and [ STRG and – ] to zoom out the writing. With the shortcut command [ STRG and 0 ], you reset the writing size to the standard value of 100 percent. Internet Explorer: In Internet Explorer, can also enlarge the writing of this page. To do so, select the menu item “View” via the browser menu bar and specify the size of the writing via the “Text size”. Unfortunately, in IE, you can only choose between five levels from “Smallest” to “Largest”. Those to whom this is not enough magnification have to dive deeper into the operating system and modify the settings in the “Ease of Access” menu item in the “Control Panel”. Here, it is furthermore possible to modify the contrast, if one is so inclined to do. Windows provides numerous pre-sets by default. To do so, proceed as follows: Go to “Start” > “Control Panel” or “Start” > “Settings” > “Control Panel”. Open “Ease of Access”. Select the “Optimize visual display” tab. Click on “Choose a High Contrast theme”. Select a High Contrast Theme of your choice. Confirm the changes.
