Accessibility

We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience and usable for people of all abilities, including older people as well as people with visual, hearing, cognitive or motor impairments.

Our website has been developed in compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (commonly known as WCAG 2.0).

Under these guidelines, all information on our website must be accessible and usable for people of all abilities, including older people as well as people with visual, hearing, cognitive or motor impairments.

What is WCAG 2.0
WCAG 2.0 is a series of international standards from the Word Wide Web Consortium. The consortium creates guidelines and supporting criteria for the web based on consultation with various interest groups including software developers, private enterprise, governments and its members.

WCAG 2.0 identifies techniques to create and manage web content in ways that are more accessible to people with disability for example, through assistive technologies like screen readers. Websites that are more accessible are also generally more user-friendly to everyone.

Accessibility testing
Many people use assistive technologies such as screen readers or screen magnifiers to help them view, read and navigate a website. To ensure our site delivers a good experience for all users and works well with newer technologies, the site has been reviewed for accessibility against the WCAG 2.0 requirements.

We have built and modified the site to support accessibility needs so we become more inclusive to a wider audience online.

We are committed to further reviewing and improving the accessibility of our websites. If you have accessibility issues or feedback, please feel welcome to contact mail@australianheritagefestival.org.au.
