Accessibility statement

Our goal

WellingtonNZ wants everyone who visits this website to have a good experience when browsing. We do this by making sure people with disabilities can access this website.

We continue to make changes to improve the website user experience for everyone. We aim to follow relevant accessibility standards.

To make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, there are requirements designers and developers should follow. The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) define these. The guidelines have three levels of accessibility: A, AA, and AAA.

Web Content Accessibility Guidelines

WellingtonNZ aims for level AA of the WCAG 2.2 guidelines. There are four principles of website accessibility.

  • Perceivable — information and user interface must be presentable to users in ways they can recognise.
  • Operable — website functions must be available to all users, for example through a keyboard.
  • Understandable — make content readable and easy to understand.
  • Robust — content must be robust enough that many users and assistive technologies can understand it.

What we are doing

To ensure the website is accessible, we:

  • use plain English and write to a 12 to 14-year-old age level
  • have internal policies that take accessibility into account
  • bring accessibility into our procurement practices
  • provide our staff with accessibility training
  • have clear targets and responsibilities for the organisation
  • conform to formal accessibility quality assurance methods.

Technologies we use include:

  • HTML
  • CSS
  • Javascript.

As part of our efforts to achieve WCAG 2.2 AA compliance, we use Siteimprove as an ongoing monitoring service.
