Compatibility with browsers and assistive technology
The Oceans and Fisheries website is designed to be compatible with the following assistive technologies:
- the latest version of Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari and Brave browsers;
- in combination with the latest versions of JAWS, NVDA, VoiceOver and TalkBack.
The accessibility of the Oceans and Fisheries website relies on the following technologies to work with the particular combination of web browser and any assistive technologies or plugins installed on your computer:
- Ambiguous navigation landmarks: When a page contains more than one navigation landmark, screen reader users will not be able to distinguish between them. We plan to fix this by October 2023.
- Infographics: Some of the infographics on our website have no or insufficient text alternatives for people with a vision impairment. We plan to fix this by October 2023.
- Skiplink visibility: The skiplink is the first link on the page, but it does not become visible when it receives keyboard focus. We plan to fix this by October 2023.
