The Generation New Era website is run by the Centre for Longitudinal Studies (CLS) at University College London (UCL).

We created this website with accessibility in mind. Our aim is that everyone can access the information that we publish.

For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours and contrast levels
  • zoom in on web pages
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • listen to most of the website using a screenreader

The colours, contrast, and fonts we have used on this website have been chosen to help you access the content. We also aim to make our website text as simple as possible to understand.

We also provide translation of the text — please see Translation below.

Some assistive technology tools you could use

Here are some of the ways you can use your computer to make web pages more accessible.

Microsoft Magnifier can make part or all of your screen bigger so you can see words and images better.
