What is web accessibility?
Web accessibility is the practice of making website content available to all users, particularly those with disabilities, including visual, auditory, physical, speech, cognitive, and neurological disabilities. It includes making a website as accessible as possible regardless of browsing technology, such as for people with text-only web browsers and old browser versions.
ACT Government’s commitment to web accessibility
The ACT Government is committed to making its website accessible to as many people as possible. To this end we are endeavouring to meet AA accessibility checkpoints as defined in the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0. This commitment applies only to the Environment and Planning Directorate website www.environment.act.gov.au and not to websites that are linked from our pages. Compliance with web accessibility is an ongoing process which we are regularly working to improve.
