Just Melbourne understands the importance of digital accessibility for all users, including those with disabilities, and we’re committed to achieving AA compliance level under the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) set by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). We regularly evaluate our platform using popular web browsers to ensure its accessibility. These guidelines are the global standard and the most recent release, at the time of writing, is version 2.0.

    Our website structure is designed with clear hierarchy and meaningful HTML code, making it easier for assistive devices and screen readers to understand and process the content. The use of the Tab key provides skip links to main navigation, content area, and footer on our pages. Our editors make a concerted effort to add descriptive alternative text to images and visual elements.

    We place a strong emphasis on creating a visual contrast between text and background to enhance readability. While there may be slight variations when text overlays images, we generally follow the WCAG’s recommendations for contrast ratios. For interactive elements that might be partially hidden, such as tabs or pop-ups, disabling JavaScript ensures that all content becomes fully visible.

    Our WordPress site supports page enlargement via browser controls. For PCs, ‘Ctrl’ and ‘+’ will zoom in, while ‘Ctrl’ and ‘-‘ will zoom out. On Macs, ‘Command’ and ‘+’ zoom in, and ‘Command’ and ‘-‘ zoom out. Additionally, we provide controls within articles to adjust the font size, often denoted by the three ‘A’s at the side or top of article content.

    We acknowledge that accessibility improvement is an ongoing process, and we’re continually working to enhance the accessibility features across our network. We’re also collaborating with third-party content providers to improve their content’s accessibility level. If you experience any accessibility issues or need assistance with specific content, we encourage you to contact us.
