  • Complying with World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) standards
  • Following mandatory requirements set out by the Australian Government Information Management Office (AGIMO)
  • Using XHTML to ensure the page can be viewed correctly in all browsers
  • Ensuring our content is readable on screen and by other devices:
    • 'Skip to content' link has been added to allow text-only browsers or screen-readers to bypass primary navigation and skip directly to the page content
    • Adobe Reader can be used to access information contained within a PDF
    • Adobe MakeAccessible Plug can create a tagged PDF to assist screen readers
