Committed to ensuring a website accessible to everyone

The Dementia Support Australia website has been built to conform to W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) guidelines for accessibility. In addition, extra accessibility features of this website are listed below.

Change Font Size

We have incorporated a font size toggle on the banner. It is indicated by the symbol Icons - UI Navigation - Default - Accessibility

If you are running a standards-compliant browser, you can also switch your font sizing settings using the browser interface - generally FONTS or STYLES under the VIEW menu.

Modern standards-compliant browsers allow you to easily increase the font sizing from the view menu, the keyboard or even the mouse by simply selecting the command to increase or decrease font size.

Browser recommendations

While Dementia Support Australia does its best to support users with older browsers, the reality is that some of our online/electronic resources require the use of modern standards-compliant browsers which have both JavaScript and cookies enabled. Running modern standards-compliant browsers allows the user to access resources, materials and the World Wide Web as it was originally intended.
