CBM Australia is committed to continually improving the accessibility of our website and communications
One way we do this is by seeking to comply with the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 (w3.org).
International web standards help define what is needed, ensuring that websites and tools are accessible to all people, including people with disabilities. The W3C recommendations recognise that “currently many sites and tools are developed with accessibility barriers that make them difficult or impossible for some people to use them. Making the web accessible benefits individuals, businesses and society.”
CBM recognises our responsibility to ensuring that people with disabilities have access to information and communications on an equal basis with others without disabilities, as set out in the United Nations (UN) Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
CBM Australia’s website and PDF documents have been optimised for use with assistive technologies that include:
- Screen readers
- Navigation switches
- Speech recognition software.
This website has been independently rated as compliant by Vision Australia. They have useful resources for assistive and adaptive technologies.
