Browser Tools for improving accessibility
Although we would recommend these, izwe cannot be held responsible for their development. We also cannot guarantee complete compatibility with all elements of izwe (but we will try).
Depending on your needs there is a whole host of Google Chrome extensions to customise the accessibility options of the browser.

Firefox is well-known as one of the most customiseable of browsers and hopefully by searching their 'Add-ons' library you will find exactly what you need.

Having done a little bit of searching around we think the one to try is this:
We're already working on a system that will allow you to browse the site in your own language but while this is being perfected we suggest two solutions:
Download Google Toolbar and it will do it's best to translate the content on izwe for you. This will work in modern versions of Internet Explorer and Firefox. The Google Chrome browser has this functionality built-in and should auto-suggest the translation of izwe into your native language.
We've been working hard to make sure izwe reaches the highest standards of accessibility. We believe that everyone should have a say in how their world works - which means that our site should make it possible to get involved no matter what assistance is required.
We've still got a way to go to make sure izwe meets our aims. As we get older, and our website isn't being updated as frequently, you will see much more integration with screen reader software and quick links to customise the site to suit your needs.
You can help us by contacting us with any specific development that would make your use of izwe easier or assistive technology we should be supporting. You can contact our technical team through our contact form [link] or by emailing help_ATIZWE_izwe.com.
In the short term, while the site is still developing at a speed which makes our heads spin, the best way to improve your experience is to use the power of your browser. As well as allowing you to better use izwe, these tools will also allow you to improve your viewing of most other websites - and all are completely free.
