Accessibility

Our Commitment To Accessibility

A number of accessibility features have been implemented across our website to make the website more accessible to people with visual, motor or cognitive disabilities. Below are some enhancements to our website that we consider beneficial to our users:

Navigation

  • A text-only site map at the bottom of the page provides links to all the main areas and sub-areas of the site in a more accessible format.
  • All navigation will still function without javascript. The javascript only enhances the experience for users with javascript turned on.

Links

  • All links are text-based. If an image is used for any link, 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 browser with styles off (this included consoles that cannot 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 (eg. Instead of ‘more’, the link may read ‘more recent news’) to make navigation easier for screen readers.
