Accessibility

The Department of Justice (DOJ) is committed to ensuring that information on its website is widely accessible..

DOJ will be taking a staged approach to ensure accessibility compliance on its websites.

Initially the work will address specific issues such as the use of JavaScript and PDFs throughout the sites, then steps will be taken to address all Level AA checkpoints of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.

If you have any accessibility problems with this website please let us know by completing the form on the about us page or calling 03 8684 0373.

We will attempt to rectify the problem and provide you with any information you require in an alternative format.

We are always interested in knowing about your experience of the accessibility of our sites.

General Web Accessibility Information

There are many tools that people with a disability can use to assist to access the internet. These tools are either hardware or software.

Hardware

These tools manipulate the keyboard or mouse, because the person with a disability cannot use them.

Software

These tools change how a user interacts with the site.

  • Screen readers: Programs such as JAWS and Window-Eyes that convert a web site into a Braille display or read it in audio for people who are blind, visually impaired or have dyslexia.
  • Screen Magnifiers: Programs that magnify sections of the screen for people with vision impairments. See Windows Screen Magnifier.
  • Oversized cursors: Large cursors for people with vision impairments such as ‘Biggy’ cursors.
  • On-screen keyboards: Keyboards for people with motor disabilities used in combination with switching devices.
  • Programs that slow down applications for people with motor disabilities, for example CPU Killer.

General Browser Shortcuts

This website works best with Microsoft Internet Explorer, Apple Safari and Mozilla Firefox. The following keyboard shortcut forms are used throughout the lists below:

  • Ctrl=Control;

iE6 Format Display

The display of this website in iE6 is not the intended format for delivery. Although we have aimed to make this site as cross browser compliant as possible, some users on iE6 with low screen resolutions may not have access to some of the usability functions and optimal online features like RSS subscriptions and dynamic navigation components. The Microsoft iE6 homepage offers users these options and information specifically for Microsoft iE6.
