Accessibility

We are committed to making this website accessible to the widest possible range of people.
We frequently review web pages that may cause issues for people with visual, auditory, motor or cognitive disabilities, or those with slow Internet speeds or portable devices. However, there may be some older pages and/or pages developed by third-parties that are not fully compliant with our accessibility standards. If you have any comments or suggestions about how we can improve this web site's accessibility, or if you have difficulty using any part of it, please email us your feedback


Using PDF documents
To view or print PDF documents, you will need to have the Adobe Acrobat software installed. If you do not have the software, you can download it free from Adobe Systems Incorporated. Tip:search Google search engines for fast findings



Why we provide documents in PDF format
We acknowledge that PDF is not the most accessible format and are working to reduce the number of PDFs on this website.
We prioritise the creation of accessible content based on criteria including the size and specialist nature of the audience for the content, how time-consuming or technically difficult it is to create accessible versions and the likely lifespan of the content.


How to change text size

Accessibility features
We have applied a number of accessibility features across the website including:



Navigation
A "Skip to content" link has been provided at the top of each page to enable users with screen readers to go directly to the content area of the page, bypassing the navigation.
A text-only site map provides links to all the main areas and sub-areas of the site in a more accessible format. The site map is located on the bottom of the page or in the skiplink for screen readers.
All navigation will still function without javascript. The javascript only enhances the experience for users with javascript turned on.


Links
Almost all links are text-based. If an image is used for any link, it will be placed directly next to a text-based version of the same link, or techniques are used to keep the text within the code so they are still text-friendly for screen readers, text-based browsers and for those who browse with styles off (this includes mobile devices which may not render cascading style sheets).
All link rollovers are high-contrast so they are easily distinguished from regular text and headlines that are not clickable.
Link content text is contextual when possible (e.g. instead of ‘more’ or ‘click here’, the link may read ‘read more latest news’ or ‘see our events calendar’) to make navigation easier for screen readers and more usable for all website visitors.


On line forms
All on line forms are built with accessibility in mind, including:
Use of the label tag. The label specifically associates a piece of text with a form field which benefits screen readers. Also, if text within a label is clicked, the associated form field is brought into focus which increases general usability.
Form Validation. If a form is submitted incorrectly, the error message returned informs the user of missing information clearly and logically, without requiring javascript


Printing options
Most content pages on our website are optimized for printing off line, and are specifically designed for hard copy and readability.
The navigation menus and other design elements will be removed, the text will wrap to the page margins, and the font face is updated ready for printing.
This will be supported in all browsers that accept print style sheets and will help those who prefer to read articles off line and/or cannot read them on a computer monitor.
It may be necessary to enable the printing of background images in your print settings if you want to closely replicate the on-screen layout. However, web graphics are generally poorly suited to printing.Tip: Using  your standard keyboard function print screen button will capture the whole screen.


Older Internet browsers
While we do our best to support users with older INTERNET browsers, some of our online/electronic resources are enhanced by the use of modern standards-compliant browsers that have both javascript and cookies enabled.
There are now several great browsers to choose from apart from Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator, many of which are designed to run on older PCs or Macs.
Running modern, standards-compliant browsers allows the user to access resources, materials and the World Wide Web as it was originally intended. Where possible, we develop support for web browsers according to W3C and WCAG.
