Accessibility and useability were key elements in the formation of the National Film and Sound Archive website and we have strived to achieve a web accessibility compliance level of Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA in accordance with the recommendations of the Australian Human Rights Commission. We are committed to providing a website and online information that are accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of location, technology or ability.
To demonstrate our commitment, we sought expert, independent accessibility testing by the Digital Accessibility Services team at Media Access Australia, who have assessed the website against Level A and Level AA of WCAG 2.0, an international benchmark developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
They conducted rigorous compliance testing in two rounds and in accordance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Evaluation Methodology (WCAG-EM).
We are working on addressing any limitations found during the assessment which may prohibit visitors from successfully navigating or using the site, to ensure an accessible experience for all.
