Under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992, Australian Government agencies are required to ensure information and services are provided in a non-discriminatory accessible manner.
To meet this requirement, the Department of Industry and Science is adopting the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.0. These guidelines are designed to help make content accessible to a wider range of people with disabilities, such as blindness and low vision, deafness and hearing loss, learning disabilities, cognitive limitations, limited movement, speech disabilities, photosensitivity and any combination of these. Following these guidelines will also often make content more usable.
There may be some data on the website held in non-HTML formats. This data is in the process of being converted into a more accessible format and is currently available to most environments supporting assistive technology.
Help and downloads
Information on accessibility techniques is available on the departmental site. You can also find out how to use the listen function (ReadSpeaker) on our site.
If, however, there is data that you require and it is in a format that you cannot access, or if you experience any other accessibility difficulties, please email our website team or write to:
