Website accessibility

Indigenous Business Australia (IBA) is committed to developing, designing and editing this website so that users of all abilities will have equal access to its information and functionality.

The  Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) set internationally recognised benchmarks for accessibility of web content. In 2008 the World Wide Web Consortium released version 2.0 of those guidelines.

Since 2009, IBA has worked to incorporate many of the principles, guidelines and criteria of the WCAG into the colour, language, functionality and  layout of this website. This work is ongoing, so if you experience any difficulties in accessing information and/or web functionality, please Email Us.

The IBA website has been developed to display adequately on all commonly used browsers. It is optimised for a 1024 x 768 screen resolution but will scale appropriately to both higher and lower screen resolutions.

Wherever possible high contrast text is used on a plain background for improved readability. Web pages are set up to print out a print-friendly format. To print, use the print function in your browser and the page will be delivered with correct formatting and without unhelpful page items such as the navigation.

The Site Map provides a comprehensive listing of all published pages on the IBA website, with links to each web pages. Search the IBA website by typing one or more keywords into the search input box at the top right of any web page.

Most images are accompanied by a brief alt-text tag to identify the image or its function.

Text hyperlinks contain meaningful text which can be read by screen readers. Links to documents include the file type and size. Link text indicates if the link opens a new document or external websites in a new window.

Tables are prefaced by explanatory text, and tables are presented vertically for screen reader use.

Videos are prefaced by a summary of content and indication of length. Typed transcripts of video content are provided for all videos, and all future videos produced by IBA will be captioned during the production process.
