Limitations of this site’s accessibility

  • While we’ve done a lot to ensure this site is accessibility, you may find some limitations:
  • We always aim to communicate clearly, and as simply as possible; however some of the articles may require a reasonable level of technical understanding due to the technical nature of what they are about.
  • Being a media organisation, many of our stories contain multimedia components such as audio and video. We are working to add captions, text transcripts and audio description to stories.
  • While the site has been created to be as accessible as possible and has been reviewed by accessibility experts, some of the website has not yet been fully user-tested with people who have disabilities.
