Web accessibility is about making website content available to all users, including people with disability. We expect our website to be accessible to all users, regardless of browsing technology or device.

Our commitment to web accessibility

The ACT Government is committed to making its websites accessible to as many people as possible.

We aim to meet AA accessibility checkpoints as defined in the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0. This commitment applies to this website and not to websites that are linked from our pages.

Compliance with web accessibility is an ongoing process we are regularly working to improve.


This website contains information in PDF (Portable Document Format) so that information is easy to download. You need Adobe Reader to access these files, which can be downloaded for free.

Our PDF network maps are best used with JAWS and NVDA screen readers. Maps provide a visual representation. Some elements on the maps are not keyboard or screen reader accessible, so they have a text alternative elsewhere on the website.


You can enlarge/decrease the text by using the Ctrl + - keys.
