Accessibility of the website

We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible and have listed the issues according to level of impact, from high to low:

Higher priority issues

  • Some interactive elements lack a visible focus indicator. Users who rely on keyboard might lose track of the navigation
  • Some pages have illogical focus order. Keyboard-only users depend on meaningful focus order.
  • Some images represent unique information on the page. Due to the lack of alternative text, users might miss this information
  • Some elements overlap when the user changes the text spacing in the browser. This may cause some users to miss important information.
  • There are elements with insufficient colour contrast. These elements can be difficult to read, especially for those with low vision, poor eyesight, or colour blindness.
  • Some animated content cannot be paused. This may prove disorienting for some users.
  • Some videos and audios do not have the required caption controls or transcriptions available.
  • Some interactive elements are not labelled correctly or do not have useful instructions. Users may not understand what the purpose of the element is.
  • Some elements are inoperable by using the keyboard alone. This will make navigating the site difficult or impossible for some users.
  • Some error messages are not descriptive. This may cause confusion to some users.

Lower priority issues

  • No skip link is available for users to bypass certain blocks of content.
  • Some decorative images are not tagged as such. As a result, assistive technology users might not understand the image purpose.
  • Some elements cannot be resized with browser settings. Users relying on browser text resize might have difficulties reading the content on the pages

Disproportionate burden


Content not within the scope of the accessibility regulation

PDFs and other documents

The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services.

We are working to review the PDFs and Word documents that are essential to providing our services. We’ll either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.

Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish after 23 September 2020 will meet accessibility standards.

Pre-recorded time-based media published before 23 September 2020

We do not plan to add captions to pre-recorded time-based media published before 23 September 2020 because these are exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.

Live video

We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
