A technical evaluation of 5 pages was conducted. The pages selected constitute an accessibility audit of the website. These pages were selected by Web Key IT and agreed on by the client as representative of the overall accessibility and functionality of the website.

The evaluation was completed in accordance with the WCAG Evaluation Methodology (WCAG-EM) which can be viewed at http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG-EM/.

Remaining Issues and Exceptions

Whilst Rights & Inclusion Australia has gone to great lengths to make all the online content in their website AA accessible, there are some aspects on this website, including some third-party content, which Rights & Inclusion Australia do not currently have the ability to bring into conformance with WCAG 2.1 to Level AA.

These include: 

  • There are some videos present on the site that do not have audio description for content that is shown visually and not already described in the audio track. However, “Easy Read” documents have been provided, where possible, to present the information present in the videos in a text format. In addition, closed captions have also been provided for the videos.
  • There is a table in the Membership form journey that has two empty table headers. Text is currently unable to be added to the table headers at this point in time.
