Victoria's Understanding Climate Change website
This website has been developed to ensure its content is available to the widest possible audience, including readers using assistive technology or accessibility features. By adhering to guidelines for accessible web design, we acknowledge the diversity of communication methods, available technologies and abilities of web-users in the community. Our Water Our Future strives to maintain conformance to W3C's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
All fonts within this website use relative font sizing. The user is able to use browser based 'text size' menu options to increase the size of the text on the page to make pages easier to read.
The pages in this website are structured using properly ordered headers.
This is done to aid legibility and to allow users to skim the main parts of the page. For instance some browsers can list all the headers on a page, or navigate directly to the next or previous header.
The label tag associates text with a form field. This benefits screen readers, as screen readers can read out the name of the field that a user has selected. This is also of benefit to web browsers, as when text of a label is clicked, the associated form field is brought into focus, which increases general usability.
Tables are only used for the display of tabular data. Headers have been associated with each row and column to aid screen readers and speech browsers.
