Our commitment to user friendly and accessible web services

The Department of Finance, Services and Innovation (DFSI) endorsed the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.0 (commonly known as WCAG 2.0).

WCAG 2.0 is a series of international standards from the Word Wide Web Consortium. It identifies techniques to create and manage web content in ways that are more accessible to people with disabilities including those who may use assistive technologies like screen readers. Websites that are more accessible are also generally more user friendly to everyone.

We take care to ensure our website and our web content meet the WCAG 2.0 standards to at least Level AA compliance so that people of all abilities, including older people and those with visual, hearing, cognitive or motor impairments can access our information and services.

We are committed to making our site as user friendly as possible. Extensive testing has been conducted to inform the design, navigation and content of our site. We will continue to develop, evaluate and improve our site to ensure our customers' needs are being met including customers with:

  • vision impairments which can range from slight vision problems, including those who wear glasses and are mature age, to colour blindness and various levels of blindness
  • cognitive and motor skill impairments who may have had an injury, a stroke, an illness like Parkinson's or Cerebral Palsy, or are mature age
  • hearing impairments including those with genetic deafness, environmental deafness and who are mature age.

Our commitment allows all people who visit our website to enjoy a more user friendly and engaging experience.
