Rare Voices Australia Accessibility Statement (Revised September 2023)
Rare Voices Australia (RVA) strives to ensure information is as accessible as possible. We understand people have varying levels of health and technology literacy, and accessibility needs. We acknowledge some people may also face language barriers when trying to access information. RVA is investing resources into ensuring our websites are easier to use and more accessible for all people. We strongly believe website accessibility efforts assist everyone.
Accessibility on www.rareportal.org.au
In our efforts to make our websites as accessible as possible, RVA’s team has participated in dedicated training from the Centre for Accessibility Australia and implements accessibility-friendly features wherever possible, including enabling captions on videos; adding alt text for images; and formatting headings on articles.
RVA also makes UserWay’s Web Accessibility Widget available. The widget is powered by a dedicated accessibility server. The software allows www.rareportal.org.au to improve its compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1).
Enabling the Accessibility Menu
The accessibility menu on www.rareportal.org.au can be enabled by clicking the accessibility menu icon that appears on the corner of the page. After triggering the accessibility menu, please wait a moment for the accessibility menu to load in its entirety.
RVA continues our efforts to constantly improve the accessibility of our sites. Despite our efforts to make all pages and content on www.rareportal.org.au fully accessible, some content may not have yet been fully adapted to the strictest accessibility standards. This may be a result of not having found or identified the most appropriate technological solution.
If you are experiencing difficulty with content on www.rareportal.org.au, or require assistance with any part of our site, please contact RVA and we will be happy to assist. If you wish to report an accessibility issue, have any questions, or need assistance, please contact RVA:
