To register you will need to use an alternative browser. For the time being, existing Internet Explorer 11 users will be able to log in with a simpler version of the sign-in form.
However, to watch on All 4 please use a more recent browser. See our minimum operating requirements for more details.
Screen reader users with Jaws 18 or above may use the Chrome browser to sign in or register to watch programmes, as this will function as expected.
For anyone using an older version of Jaws (prior to Jaws version 18) we recommend using NVDA and Firefox to give an optimal experience. For getting and setting up NVDA, please see their user guide.
If you are having significant issues, please contact our Viewer Enquiries team using the contact us tab above (or click here) and they will be happy to help you further.
If you want to change the size of what you see in Windows, you have two options. You can change the size of what is on screen or change the resolution. Changing the size is usually the best option.Open Start , select Settings > System > Display.
Under Scale and layout, check the setting under Change the size of text, apps, and other items. We suggest you use the percentage marked "(Recommended)."
If that doesn't solve your problem, under Resolution, select a new value. We suggest you stick with the resolution marked "(Recommended)."
Note: If your resolution was fine and recently changed (things appear huge, for example), your graphics driver might need to be updated. Run Windows Update to get the latest driver. If it's just the size of things in your web browser windows that changed, try pressing the Ctrl+0 (zero) keys to return the zoom level to 100%.
Changing the size of the All 4 Player screen:
You can watch programmes in small, medium or full-screen view by clicking on the icons in the bottom right hand corner of the All 4 player. This will give options for the 'Pop out player' as well as 'Full screen'.
The All 4 player on channel4.com is keyboard and screen reader accessible, and works with JAWS 15 or greater, as well as NVDA. It is recommended to use Jaws 18 and above with Chrome or NVDA with Firefox.
As well as controls to operate the video, the player may also contain one or more screens such as age confirmation or login to view restricted content. Please follow the provided details and instructions to complete these steps.
Navigating through screens and using the controls:
TAB – cycles forward through screen options and control buttons
SHIFT + TAB - cycles backward through screen options and control buttons
SPACEBAR or ENTER – activate control / button / link NB: If using JAWS you will need to ensure that the Virtual PC Cursor is switched off (Insert + Z).
Please note: For those using the combination of JAWS 17 and IE11, Microsoft is slowly dropping support of Internet Explorer 11 and Adobe Flash will not be supported in web browsers by the end of 2020, so to watch All 4 please use a more recent browser (Chrome, Safari, Microsoft Edge, Firefox). If you are having significant issues, please contact our Viewer Enquiries team using the contact us tab above (or click here) and they will be happy to help you further.
