This website is run by the Office for Digital Government (a team within the Department of the Premier and Cabinet).

We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website.

For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

How we test this website

We’re constantly working to make this website accessible and usable as possible.

In August 2019 we engaged Vision Australia to complete an audit of the components that make up this website to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA.

We're currently (January 2020) working to resolve the issues identified in this audit.

Other methods we've used to identify and resolve issues include:

  • general feedback on the usability of this website from its users
  • engaging the Plain English Campaign in May 2019 to review our language, accessibility, navigation, design and layout
  • conducting usability testing

Before publishing content, we also review suggestions from automated tools to improve:

  • accessibility
  • readability grade level (designed to show how difficult our content is to understand)
  • the average time it takes to read our content
