Accessibility

The Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission (IBAC) is committed to ensuring that information on its website is widely accessible. IBAC will be taking a staged approach to ensure accessibility compliance on its website.

Initially the work will address specific issues such as the use of JavaScript and PDFs throughout the site, and then steps will be taken to address all Level AA checkpoints of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.

If you have any accessibility problems with the website please let us know by emailing info@ibac.vic.gov.au

We will attempt to rectify the problem and provide you with any information you require in an alternative format. We are always interested in knowing about your experience of the accessibility of the IBAC site.

General Web Accessibility Information

There are many tools that people with a disability can use to assist them to access the Internet. These tools are either hardware or software.

Hardware

These tools manipulate the keyboard or mouse, because the person with a disability cannot use them. Examples are:

  • A small Braille display that a blind person can use to read the screen line by line.
  • Pointers that manipulate the mouse onscreen for people with motor disabilities.
  • Alternative keyboards - Keyboards that have limited keys for people with motor disabilities. These include keyboards manipulated by fingers and keyboards manipulated using a head-wand.

Software

These tools change how a user interacts with the site.

Examples are:

  • Screen readers - Programs such as and that convert a web site into a Braille display or read it in audio for people who are blind, visually impaired or have dyslexia.
  • Screen Magnifiers - Programs that magnify sections of the screen for people with vision impairments. See Windows Screen Magnifier.
  • Oversized cursors - Large cursors for people with vision impairments. See "Biggy" cursors.
  • Onscreen keyboards - Keyboards for people with motor disabilities used in combination with switching devices. See On-screen keyboard.
  • Programs that slow down applications for people with motor disabilities, for example CPU Killer (for Windows).

Notes about Internet Explorer

The display of this website in iE6 and IE7 is not the intended format for delivery. Although we have aimed to make this site as cross browser compliant as possible, some users on iE6 with low screen resolutions may not have access to some of the usability functions and optimal online features like RSS subscriptions and dynamic navigation components.

For Support in Internet explorer 6.0, see Microsoft iE6 Home.
