The Victorian Government’s Accessiiblity Toolkit (version 3 – Sept 2009) has now been published on the eGovernment Resource Centre.
The Victorian Government’s Accessibility Standard requires that: All websites must be Level AA compliant (W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, Version 1.0 – WCAG 1.0). However, where audience needs are specific, websites should become Level AAA as appropriate.
This toolkit shows departments and agencies how to conform to this policy and the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, Version 1.0. The toolkit is designed for Victorian Government business managers and web site owners to enable them to effectively present the business case for accessibility and manage the processes involved.
An HTML version of the toolkit is currently being developed.
At over 270 pages the toolkit provides very detailed guidance on how to make government websites accessible to all visitors.
