Information for Visually Impaired Clients

The ABS operates in accordance with the Australian Government Information Management Office (AGIMO) guidelines relating to accessibility for visually impaired users and is working to ensure that our web site meets the requirements of the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.

The ABS is making an effort to ensure that our web site is accessible by visually impaired users. However, due to technological limitations, it is not possible to make the web site entirely accessible in a cost effective manner. This limitation means that some tables, products or parts of the web site may be less accessible to some visually impaired users.

Where any of our web products are not suitably accessible, the ABS will be pleased to make arrangements for the Royal Society for the Blind to translate the product into a more appropriate format. This service is provided at no additional cost to the user.

For further information about having products translated, or if you are experiencing difficulties accessing this site for any reason please contact the National Information and Referral Service.
