What is web accessibility

Communication via the Internet should be available or accessible to everyone. Web accessibility means:

  • removing obstacles that might prevent people with disability from accessing information online
  • enabling web sites to function with assistive and innovative technologies
  • ensuring that web sites can be accessed on lower speed Internet connections or with older technologies.

Our aim

Our aim is to ensure this website contains the best functionality of web accessibility.

Your feedback

We are constantly trying to improve the usability and accessibility of the Job Outlook web site and invite your feedback and comments. You can email Job Outlook with your feedback and contact details. We will contact you as soon as possible.

Printing and file formats

Each page of the Job Outlook web site is printer friendly. Sometimes we will provide links to brochures or fact sheets that you can print out or read on the screen. These documents will always be provided in two formats:

PDF—Portable Document Format

PDF documents look like they have been scanned or photographed. They require the use of Acrobat Reader, or a similar software product, to open and may not be compatible with some forms of assistive technology, particular older products. To access a free download of Acrobat Reader or to view alternative software options, click on the following links (please note that these links will take you to an external web site in a new window):
