Legal Aid NSW is committed to ensuring our website is available to the widest possible audience, including readers using assistive technology or accessibility features. We strive to comply with WCAG Level AA guidelines.

By adhering to guidelines for accessible web design, we acknowledge the diversity of communication methods, available technologies, and abilities of web users in the community.

Care was taken to ensure the colour contrast ratios between text and background is high enough to be easily read by screen readers, using a clear page structure, heading hierarchy and templates, being considerate about users with screen reading devices, and providing descriptions for images and videos.

The Legal Aid NSW website has built the accessibility option to change the font size and spacing. All video/audio media will have the ability to be paused and close captioning and subtitles included for videos.

The content of our website is written in a way that improves readability:

  • wherever possible used plain English
  • content split into smaller sections with sub-titles relevant to those viewing the information

We continue improving the accessibility of the Legal Aid NSW website as web technologies and assistive technologies change.
