This section explains the features that have been incorporated into this site to provide a level of accessibility for all users.
If you find that the text is too small for you to read, you can change it to a size you’re more comfortable with:
- In Internet Explorer, use the Zoom option in the Settings menu.
- In Firefox, press the Alt key to temporarily bring up the traditional Firefox menus. On the menu at the top, click View, then go to Zoom.
- In Chrome, use the Zoom option in the Settings menu.
- In Safari, use the View > Make Text Bigger option.
- In Opera, use the Zoom selector.
If you use a wheel-mouse, you may be able to change the text size by holding down the Control or Command key and turning the wheel. In some browsers you can change the text size using Control or Command and the + and - keys. In certain browsers, these functions may ‘zoom’ the entire site rather than just the text.

Freedom of Information
The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 came into force on January 1st 2005.
The act aims to increase openness and accountability in government and across the public sector by ensuring that people have the right to access information held by Scottish public authorities.
People are able to see and question how such bodies function and how decisions are made.
Each public authority must have a publication scheme. This sets out the kinds of information the authority publishes or intends to publish, how the information is made available and whether there is a fee for the information.
You can find out more about costs and how to submit an FOI request on the National Museums Scotland website.
Women in Maths
To celebrate women in Maths Day (12 May) we interviewed six women with maths at the core of their role and will be releasing the videos throughout May.
Our next two videos are women who work with large numbers which affect all of our lives. Kate Forbes is the Cabinet Secretary for Finance for Scotland and Esther Roughsedge is a Statistician at National Records of Scotland.
