We aim to provide information and services in an accessible manner for people with disabilities. This is also a requirement under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992.
This includes making accessible:
- our website
- our telephone service
- our building and office premises.
Using our website
We’ve designed this website to meet the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Version 2.0.
- designing pages that can be easily read by screen readers
- inserting a 'skip to content' link at the top of the page, which allows screen readers to skip navigational elements and go straight to the text
- providing text equivalents ('alt tags') for images
- providing transcripts or captions for video files.
The ASIC website is designed to be compatible with common web browsers. If you have issues, we recommend:
- clearing your browser's cache and cookies
- trying a different browser
- using a desktop computer - some of our online forms don't work as well on mobiles or tablets.
Alternative text, closed captions and video transcripts
Wherever possible throughout our site, we use alternative text to ensure people who use screen readers can access the information.
Our YouTube channel includes closed captions so customers can still understand our content. Where possible, we also provide written transcripts for videos.
