Cross Borders is committed to ensuring digital accessibility for people with disabilities and people with English as an additional language. We are continually improving the user experience for everyone, and applying the relevant accessibility standards.

How accessible is this website?

We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website, so we have taken steps to make its content as accessible as possible. This means:

  • All pages have a readable default text size, clear font, and colour contrasts.
  • We have included alternative text for all images.
  • We have provided key information in multiple languages.
  • You can navigate most of the website using just a keyboard.
  • You can zoom in up to 400% with the full text remaining on the screen.
  • We caption all the videos we create.
  • We create PDFs that are accessible for screen readers.
  • AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

Accessibility commitments

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. is conformant with WCAG level AA.

We have committed to making improvements and enhancing the features over time, including by formatting documents, website and social copy with screen readers in mind. We aim to review this statement every year and every time there is a major change to the website.
