The Department of Internal Affairs website has been specifically designed for people with disabilities. It has features that are aimed at people with visual impairment and those who prefer to use the keyboard than a mouse.
The site has been structured to be screen reader compatible. We have tested the site with several screen-reader capable browsers.You can also override most of the design features of the site; to change the font; font size; font colour; or background colours to suit your visual preferences. We do not endorse or support any particular browsers; but we have tested our site with Opera and with IBM’s Home Page Reader. We will be expanding our testing program to ensure that our site can support as many browsers as possible. Our aim is to be compatible with the HTML 4.01 standard and to limit browser-specific features as far as possible.
