This website has been developed to ensure it meets AA-standard accessibility according to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

Responsive design

Our website has been designed in a manner so that it adapts to the environment/device with which it’s being viewed i.e. content will change so that it’s easily viewable on any device, including smartphones, laptops, desktop computers and tablets.

Software tools

Specific software has been developed to help users interact with computers. These include:

  • Screen readers: These tools read webpage content out loud, including menu options and image descriptions. Some internet browsers and operating systems have built-in screen readers. Vision Australia recommends JAWS for workplace environments, and for home and education, VoiceOver and NVDA may be appropriate.
  • Screen magnifiers: Programs that magnify sections of a computer screen for people with vision impairments e.g. Windows Screen Magnifier.
  • Oversized cursor software: Included as standard in most newer operation systems, this can help people with vision impairments use a computer cursor.
  • On-screen keyboards: When used with switching devices, these can help people with motor disabilities use a computer keyboard. Windows has a built-in on-screen keyboard.


If you have any suggestions for how we could improve the accessibility of our website, or any other feedback, please contact us.
