Our approach to accessibility is outlined in our online accessibility action plan, and further discussed on this page.
We follow World Wide Web Consortium’s standards as far as possible – a set of global standards designed to make content available to everyone. This includes following their WCAG 1.0 Web Accessibility Initiative guidelines and, as far as possible with new content, we aim to meet their WCAG 2.0 guidelines. We also aim to meet the Australian Government Information Management Office’s mandatory requirements for Australian Government agencies.
As far as possible we have documents and/or summaries of documents available in either HTML and/or PDF formats.
Some material on this site is available in PDF format. We use PDFs because they’re portable, printable and reasonably accessible. A free PDF reader can be downloaded.
If you are vision impaired, go to Adobe’s screen-reader compatible download page. You may also find it helpful to download the Adobe Access plug-in which supports Windows text reading programs.
For more information on PDF document accessibility go to Adobe’s website.
Images on this site have meaningful alternative ‘alt’ tags which can be read by screen readers.
