Site accessibility

The Australian Sports Commission website provides a wide range of information to all Australians. We have incorporated a number of facilities in our website to enable easier access to our content.

Image use

As far as is practical, no images have been used to represent text on this website. As a result, all navigational elements and content will be accessible to all users, regardless of the hardware or software used to browse the ASC website. The number of images on pages has been kept to a minimum to shorten the loading time of each page.

Document formats

Documents included on the ASC website are presented in alternative formats. The most commonly accessed documents are provided as standard webpages, which can viewed in a browser or printed and read offline, and RTF and PDF documents are also used in various areas.

RTF documents can be opened in most word processor programs including Microsoft Word, Microsoft WordPad, Corel WordPerfect, AppleWorks, and ClarisWorks.

Some documents are presented only in PDF format. PDF files can be viewed using a number of different software products - PDF Readers.

If you have trouble accessing one of these documents please contact us.

Government accessibility standards

The Australian Government Information Management Office sets out minimum standards of website accessibility, and the ASC website seeks to comply with these standards in an effort to make our content easily available to all users, regardless of the hardware or software used to access our website, or the constraints under which the user may be operating. The ASC website is regularly tested to ensure ongoing conformance with these standards.

The website accessibility standards outline three levels of conformance that describe how well a website answers the requirements. The first level of compliancy assures that a website has fulfilled all checkpoints that are absoluetly necessary to provide a minimum standard of accessibility. The second level of compliancy assures that a website has fulfilled all the checkpoints that should be followed to provide a good level of accessibility. The third level of compliancy assures that a website has fulfilled all checkpoints that may be followed to provide an optimal level of accessibility.

The ASC website strives to uphold the second level of compliance for all webpages.

If you encounter any problems while using this website, or find that content is inaccessible, please tell us by using the Feedback link at the bottom of every page.
