Veterans Advocacy Community of Practice Accessibility Statement
Updated: August 2022.
The Australian Veterans' Connect Program (AV Connect) strives to ensure that its services are accessible to people with disabilities. AV Connect has invested a significant amount of resources to help ensure that its website is made easier to use and more accessible for people with disabilities, with the strong belief that website accessibility efforts assist all users and that every person has the right to live with dignity, equality, comfort and independence.
Accessibility on www.avconnect.org.au
www.avconnect.org.au makes UserWay's Web Accessibility Widget available which is powered by a dedicated accessibility server. The software allows www.avconnect.org.au to improve its compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1).
Enabling the Accessibility Menu
The www.avconnect.org.au accessibility menu can be enabled by clicking the accessibility menu icon that appears on the corner of the page. After triggering the accessibility menu, please wait a moment for the accessibility menu to load in its entirety.
AV Connect continues its efforts to constantly improve the accessibility of its site and services in the belief that it is our collective moral obligation to allow seamless, accessible and unhindered use also for those of us with disabilities.
In an ongoing effort to continually improve and remediate accessibility issues, we also regularly scan www.avconnect.org.au with UserWay's Accessibility Scanner to identify and fix every possible accessibility barrier on our site. Despite our efforts to make all pages and content on www.avconnect.org.au fully accessible, some content may not have yet been fully adapted to the strictest accessibility standards. This may be a result of not having found or identified the most appropriate technological solution.
