The Raising Children Network is continually updating its website to offer a range of accessibility solutions for our users.

Web accessibility guidelines

Our website aims to meet the Web Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and incorporate all relevant WCAG A and AA requirements as endorsed by the Australian Government.

The WCAG 2.0 guidelines aim to improve web accessibility for a wider range of people with disabilities, including blindness and low vision, deafness and hearing loss, learning difficulties, cognitive limitations, limited movement, speech disabilities, photosensitivity and combinations of these.

How we meet web accessibility guidelines

To meet WCAG 2.0 guidelines, we’ve added these features to our site:

  • Readspeaker text-to-speech, for users who have trouble reading text online
  • transcripts of videos for users with hearing impairments – these are available as PDF downloads from each video page
  • translations of videos into Auslan and languages other than English – use the menu available on video pages to choose this option
  • translation of key articles into languages other than English
  • text resizer to quickly change the website font sizes for better readability.

Ongoing upgrades to raisingchildren.net.au ensure that our site conforms to Australian Government accessibility requirements.
