Accessibility

The Victoria State Emergency Service website at ses.vic.gov.au has been developed to be completely accessible and usable, working in accordance with W3C's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.

This site uses the Open Source Content Management System Plone. If there is anything on this site - accessibility or validation related - that is not according to the standard, please contact the Site Administration, and not the Plone Team.

Access keys

Access keys are a navigation device enabling you to get around this website using your keyboard.

Available access keys

This site uses a setup that closely matches most international recommendations on access keys. These are:

  • 1 — Home Page
  • 2 — Skip to content
  • 3 — Site Map
  • 4 — Search field focus
  • 5 — Advanced Search
  • 6 — Site navigation tree
  • 9 — Contact information
  • 0 — Access Key details

Validation

We have used XHTML 1.0 and CSS that conforms to specification, as laid out by the W3C because we believe that usability and accessibility must have a solid foundation. If anything on this website does not validate correctly, please contact the Site Administration.

We have also endeavoured to achieve an AA level of accessibility as measured against version 2.0 of the WCAG. We are aware however, that a number of the checkpoints of the WCAG are subjective — and although we are sure that we have met them squarely, there may be instances where interpretation may vary.
