I am committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience in accordance with the New Zealand Web Accessibility standards and WCAG guidelines, and am committed to providing a positive experience to all users as I strive to promote accessibility and inclusion.
I am actively working to increase accessibility and usability of my website to everyone. If you are using a screen reader or other auxiliary aid and are having problems using this website, please contact me. Whether you are using assistive technologies like a screen reader, a magnifier, voice recognition software, or captions for videos, my goal is to make your visit to this website a successful and enjoyable experience.
If you have difficulty using or accessing any element of this website, please feel free to email me at the above email and I will work with you to provide the information, item, or element you seek through a communication method that is accessible for you consistent with applicable law.
I am currently taking a variety of steps and devoting resources to further enhance the accessibility of my website. Currently, I am working on implementing proper keyboard navigation with appropriate hover and focus state. After this I will be looking at colour contrast across the entire site to ensure this meets AA levels or higher.
Using tools such as WAVE, NVDA, axe DevTools and Lighthouse I am working towards greater accessibility of this website, and hope to work with an independent accessibility consultant sometime in the future to conduct a deeper audit.
- colour contrast is not AA level or higher in some areas
- improper ordering of headers on some pages
- use of technical language on some pages that could use plain language
- lack of proper labels and titles on certain elements such as iframes
