We want our web site to be as accessible as possible and strive to conform at a minimum to Level Double-A compliance as specified by the Web Accessibility Initiative. This also involves implementing several selected Priority 3 checkpoints required to make the site Level Triple-A standard.
The guidelines defined by the WAI also form the basis of the standard required by the Royal National Institute for the Blind and their "See it right" campaign.
We aim to comply with the Disability Discrimination Act of 1995 with respect to the provision of services online, as required by the Disability Rights Commission. This Act states unambiguously that private and public sector web sites must be accessible.
Please contact us if you wish to give us feedback so we can continue to improve the accessibility of this web site.
