Deakin University is committed to providing a website that's accessible to everyone. We're constantly improving the website’s accessibility and usability, and are working towards achieving compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA standards.
Working towards WCAG 2.1 AA
We do this by:
using standardised designs and templates that have been tested for AA compliance
building the website using HTML 5 specifications and defining the look and feel by CSS3
providing training, guidelines and support for our website developers and publishers in accessibility standards
using automated accessibility testing tools as well as manual checks with the keyboard and screen reader software
conducting accessibility reviews and actioning issues
providing Deakin students and staff with accessibility software and support
encouraging feedback from our users.
