Our website aims to meet the Australian Government's web accessibility requirements. These include the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.0 (WCAG 2.0) at level AA.
There are WCAG 2.0 checkpoints that we don't comply with. This is because they can cause specific problems for particular groups of people with a disability. These include:
- We do not use accesskeys. This is because most accesskey combinations are taken by the operating system and some screen readers.
- We do not use TABINDEX. This is because we have designed this website to have a logical page order.
- We do not have non-link, printable characters between adjacent links. This checkpoint was specifically meant to address a screen reader issue with adjacent links, and all current and recently released screen readers now handle adjacent links appropriately.
