Site name – Each page begins with the site name ‘Find & Connect Australia’ as the primary heading.
Skip to content – All pages include a hidden skip link that becomes visible when focussed – via keyboard tab. This allows assistive device users to quickly skip over the site navigation to the page content.
Site navigation – The site navigation appears across the top of all pages. The navigation items are displayed as a series of links.
Content – The main content appears below the site navigation on all pages.
Footer information – At the bottom of the page are links to the Home, About and Feedback pages as well as the Creative Commons license under which content on this website is published.
Links – The content of all text-based links has been written clearly and concisely to aid users with assistive devices.
Images – Concise text alternatives have been provided for all content-related images. Images that are purely decorative have not been given text alternatives.
Colour – Colours have been chosen to provide good contrast between text and backgrounds. We have avoided colour combinations that are known to cause difficulties for people with vision impairment.
Resizing text in Internet Explorer – If you are using Internet Explorer, you can change the font size by selecting the ‘View’ menu item and then selecting the ‘Text Size’ option. Internet Explorer offers five size options (largest, large, medium, smaller, smallest). When you change this setting it will be remembered for all web sites that you visit.
If you are using Internet Explorer 7, you can hold down the CTRL key and press the plus (+) or minus (-) keys, which will increase or decrease the entire page.
Resizing text in Firefox – If you are using Firefox, you can change the font size by selecting the ‘View’ menu item and then selecting the ‘Zoom’ option. Unlike Internet Explorer, you are not limited to five sizes – you can continue to increase or decrease the text size as needed. Firefox users can also hold down the CTRL key and press the plus (+) and minus (-) keys to increase or decrease the layout size.
Resizing text in Apple Safari – If you are using Apple Safari, you can change the font size by selecting the ‘View’ menu item and then selecting either ‘Zoom in’, ‘Zoom out’ or ‘Zoom text only’. These options let you increase or decrease the overall layout, or just the text size as needed. Safari users can also hold down the COMMAND key and press the plus (+) and minus (-) keys to increase or decrease the text size.
