Website accessibility

Sydney TAFE is committed to a continuous improvement process regarding website accessibility. Below is an outline of the steps we have taken with this website to ensure we achieve this.

Site accessibility

Images

Every image conveying information uses ALT attributes to describe the image in text format, enabling screen readers to read it.

Text sizing

The text size can be changed using standard browser tools. Options for changing text size:

  • For Internet Explorer and Firefox: Hold down the CTRL key and roll the mouse wheel forward or backward to increase or decrease font size; or hold CTRL key and click on + or – key
  • Resize font by clicking on AA on the bottom of each page within the site.

JavaScript

All pages are usable when scripts, applets, or other programmatic objects are turned off or not supported.

Downloads/PDFs

If you don't have software/plug-in to display PDF documents, you can use Adobe conversion online tools or download and install Adobe Acrobat Reader.
