Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) compliance

As part of a commitment to accessibility, the Moreton Bay Regional Council website has been developed according to the Web Accessibility Initiative's  Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. Through a combination of automated and manual reviews, pages on this website have been deemed to at a minimum meet the requirements for AA conformance. Where practical AAA guidelines have also been addressed.

The files that comprise this website have also been checked for valid HTML and CSS content.

However, as assessment against some guidelines includes an element of subjectivity, and as this website is constantly evolving and growing, we value your feedback.

Skip links & keyboard navigation

For screenreaders and other serial browsers, links, forms and text are designed to be accessible with the keyboard (or equivalent pointing/actuating device). You can navigate through a page using the Tab and Enter keys, or those commands you would normally use.

Groups of related links are generally displayed as lists. "Skip navigation" links have been provided within the tab order of each page (otherwise not visible within the viewing window) to enable users to bypass a series of links and take the focus directly to the main content.

Text size

This website has been designed to allow your internet browser to determine the size of text throughout the site.

Hyperlinks

Where a hyperlink is to a document, the file type and size of the document is indicated. Efforts have also been made to provide this information in a way that is meaningful for screen readers and other serial browsers. For information on document types and software requirements, visit the Help section of this website.
