The Drum, Wembley accessibility statement

This service is offered as part of the wider Brent council website. There’s a separate accessibility statement for the main Brent council website and associated web platforms and applications.

This page only contains information about

Using this service

We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

You should also be able to translate content on our website into a language you speak.

To make our website easier to use, the site uses a tool called ‘Browsealoud, a piece of software which helps people who:

  • can't see very well
  • are blind
  • can't hear very well
  • find a keyboard or mouse hard to use
  • find words difficult
  • speak a different language

You don't have to download or install anything - just click on the ‘speak’ button, located at the top of every page to access the additional toolbar.

It includes text to speech functionality, dyslexia software and a translation tool with over 100 languages.  You can also use it to change colour schemes, font sizes and style.

We’re also making the website text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability:
