Frequently Asked Questions
Can I save my settings?
Yes. The settings will automatically save when you navigate to another page, or if you leave the site and come back. The only setting which does not save is the text size, which we are aware of and working towards.
Refreshing the page therefore does not reset to default, you must use the ‘reset all changes’ button on the toolbar.
How do I change the language?
To change the language of the website that you are viewing you need to select the area marked “Select Language” on the toolbar. This will then produce a drop-down list of all the languages that Google offers translation to. Find the language that you want from the list and click on it, the site will then be converted to that language.
