Accessibility

E-ACT has re-designed its website to ensure that it is accessible to everyone. We have an understanding of how different people access the internet and have developed a site that is clear, concise and easy to use.

Layout
The layout of the website has been created to make the website as accessible as possible for users with special requirements or impairments. The colours used on the site have been selected so contrast does not affect ease of reading. Most of the images used on the website include descriptive captions. Those that don’t have been used purely for decorative purposes.

At the top of each page, you will find the website’s primary navigation. The secondary navigation elements can be found on individual pages, running vertically down the left hand side. To be directed to the homepage at any point, simply click on the E-ACT logo in the top left corner.

Downloads
This site uses PDF (Adobe Acrobat) file format for the publication of large and complex documents viewed online through a third party, Issuu. To view and print PDF files, you must have Adobe® Acrobat® Reader installed. Download the software at get.adobe.com/reader/

Translations

About the Site
While the website has been designed to be as accessible to as many users as possible, the pages have been optimised to be best viewed with your screen resolution set to 1024×768 pixels or higher. To get the best from colour images contained on these pages we recommend you view with a colour depth greater than 256 colours.

Accessibility
We are committed to making the website as accessible as possible to users with disabilities, including users who may be blind or partially sighted.

The design of our website includes a number of accessibility features including:

• a common design throughout

• images used in our site are given appropriate alternative text descriptions

• in general, we try to avoid the use of other proprietary publishing formats such as Shockwave Flash. We use other technologies, such as Javascript, appropriately to avoid creating accessibility barriers
