Our accessibility standards adhere to the World Wide Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 1.0) and to recommendations set out by the e-Government Unit. Currently our site is compliant to WCAG priority 2 (Double A compliance) standard.
In March 2012 we had ROKTALK installed on our website. ROKTALK is a piece of software which enables people with visual impairments, learning difficulties and dyslexia enhanced access to our website. In addition, it also provides translation in six languages.
It enables visitors to our website to hear written text spoken aloud in a life-like voice in six different accents and languages without the need for the visitor to download any software. In addition, it allows the font size to increase and for the colour of the screen to change to suit different visual impairments.
The best setting to have ROKTALK on is ‘auto’. This slows the spoken voice down. The manual setting is faster.
Our website has the six most requested languages for translation services within SCRA - Arabic, Mandarin, Polish, Russian, Slovakian and Turkish.
You can access ROKTALK via the icon on the bottom left hand corner of the home page.
