Accessibility Information - Volunteer Register

The Catholic Archdiocese of Brisbane strives to ensure all publically available information is delivered in the most accessible manner possible. To acheive this a number of web policies have been put in place involving text size adjustment, instant jumping to content and alternate text for images.

Text Size Adjustment

Most web browsers support increasing and decreasing the size of the text on our website.

Browser Menu Items Macintosh Shortcut Windows Shortcut
Internet Explorer View > Text Size > Largest None None
Netscape/Firefox View > Text Size > Increase Command + Ctrl +
Opera View > Zoom > % Command + +
Safari View > Make Text Bigger Command + None

If you have a mouse which has a scroll wheel you can also hold the ctrl key (windows) or command key (macintosh) and move the scroll wheel to increase and decrease the size of the text on our website.

Instant Content Jumping

For users of screen readers we have added a 'Skip to content' link as the first link on every page of this website (hidden from view however read out by screen readers). This link will take your screen reader directly to the content of the page. This is useful to avoid having to listen to all navigation elements if you simply need to hear the page content.  

Note: in most browsers you can press 'Alt + S' to access this function with your keyboard. You may also need to press the 'Enter' key after this to activate the skip to content function depending on the browser you are using.

Keyboard Navigation

You may use the keyboard to navigate the links on our website. By pressing the 'Tab' key repeatedly you will see a light coloured box appear around each link consecutively. Simply press the 'Tab' key to highlight your desired link followed by the 'Enter' key and your browser will open the corresponding page.

Alternate Image Text

All images utilise alternate text. This means users with screen readers can hear a description of the image (useful for images containing text). In addition in some browsers you may hold your mouse over an image to see the description contained within the page.
