As part of our commitment to the Web Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, we're enhancing our website to make it more accessible to more people.
The WCAG 2.0 guidelines aim to improve web accessibility to a wider range of people with disabilities, including blindness and low vision, deafness and hearing loss, learning difficulties, cognitive limitations, limited movement, speech disabilities, photosensitivity and combinations of these.
In fitting with these guidelines, we’ve added these features to our site:
transcripts of videos for those with deafness or hearing loss – these are available as PDF downloads from each video’s page
translations of videos
into Auslan and languages other than English – use the menu available on video pages to choose this option
translation of key articles into languages other than English
text-to-speech, for those who have trouble reading text online.
Ongoing upgrades to the Raising Children website will ensure our site conforms to the timeframes set by the Australian Government.
