Screen Readers

We tested our website on three major screen readers: NVDA, Jaws and Voice Over. Hopefully you’ve been able to navigate the site easily and find any content you are after. If you are using a screen reader and come across any bugs or major design flaws, please let us know by emailing: hello@able.co.nz

Accessible Design

Our site was designed with accessible standards in mind so that your native tools for zooming and setting a larger text size should work well with our content. On most browsers using Windows, this means clicking Ctrl and ‘+’ (plus) to zoom in, or Ctrl and ‘-’ (minus) to zoom out. For Macs it means clicking command and ‘+’ (plus) to zoom in, or commandand ‘-’ (minus) to zoom out.

Since we’ve employed a responsive design that changes when you are on different devices such as tablets and mobiles, you’ll also see these alternate design when you zoom in on a page. The main difference in these designs is that the menu is hidden behind a menu button that looks like this:

We have avoided low contrast colours for buttons and typography in our design so there should not be any requirement for an additional high contrast layer. If this hasn’t been the case for you, please let us know by emailing hello@able.co.nz

If you require additional information on how to make your whole browser experience more accessible, the BBC have put together a comprehensive guide for visual accessibility that covers all browsers. View the BBC resource here.
