Accessibility statement

Global Disability Innovation Hub (GDI Hub) is committed to providing a website that can be used and enjoyed by the widest possible audience. We develop the site with this in mind, and are actively asking for feedback on how we can continue to improve it.

This website has been designed and developed by Ten4 Design to facilitate the promotion of the GDI Hub's work, expertise and services. It is hereafter referred to as “the website”. This accessibility statement applies to the website only.

Measures to support accessibility

We aim to make the website accessible to the widest possible audience. This means, for example, you should be able to:

  • Change colours, contrast levels and fonts using your device settings.
  • Zoom in up to 300% without compromising text or images.
  • Navigate the website using just a keyboard.
  • Navigate the website using speech recognition software.
  • Listen to the website using a screen reader.
  • Watch all narrative videos with closed captions.

Visit AbilityNet for advice on making your device easier to use if you have specific requirements.

Conformance status

We believe the website is compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.2, AA standard.

Limitations and alternatives

Despite our best efforts to ensure accessibility of the website, there may be some limitations.

The content listed below is known to have limited accessibility. Please contact us if you observe an issue not listed below.

  • Closed Captions — While most narrative videos on the website are accompanied by correctly encoded closed captions, there may, on occasion, be third-party videos (i.e. not videos produced by us) that either contain “burned-in captions” (where the captions form part of the video itself, and cannot be changed according to per personal requirements), or no closed captions.
  • Alt text — While we have made every effort to provide good alt text for all images used on the site, we are aware that some alt text contains missing or extraneous information; we are working to resolve the issue.

Preparation of this accessibility statement

This statement was prepared in October 2023. The website was tested for compliance against the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines V2.2 level A and AA using a combination of automated tools and manual checks.
