Website Accessibility

Inner West Council’s website has been developed to ensure its content is available to the widest possible audience, including readers using assistive technology or accessibility features.

By adhering to guidelines for accessible web design, the diversity of communication methods, available technologies and abilities of web-users in the community is acknowledged.

Council strives to maintain conformance to W3C's "Web Content Accessibility Guidelines".

We currently utilise the online text to speech software ReadSpeaker® to provide access to our web content and web documents to the broader community.  Find more information on the ReadSpeaker website

The PDF files can also be viewed using a number of other different software products should you have trouble with ReadSpeaker.
