This accessibility statement applies to cancerwa.asn.au.
By implementing the Recite Me tool, we’re working to improve the accessibility of our content and services for West Australians with a disability, who require additional access support. Resources have been dedicated to enhancing our website’s usability and accessibility.
Recite Me Assistive Technology
We’re here for all West Australians impacted by a cancer diagnosis and want to ensure as many people as possible can use and obtain information from our website. To provide additional support to aid a more inclusive user experience we provide the Recite Me assistive technology tool. This toolbar enables website visitors to customise their experience through a range of options, to suit their online accessibility and language needs.
The Recite Me toolbar provides text-to-speech functionality, fully customisable styling features, reading aids and a translation tool with over 100 languages, including 65 text-to-speech voices and many other features.
This means that when the toolbar is activated by the user they can:
- Listen to the website using text to speech functionality.
- Customise background, text and accessibility tool colours.
- Modify the font, line height or spacing of text.
- Zoom in up to 200% without text spilling off the screen.
- The text will reflow in a single column when you change the size of your browser window.
- Navigate the website using just a keyboard.
- Translate the website into a different language.
- Download mp3 files of web page text.
- View website pages in text-only mode.

Third-Party Content and Functionality
We may make use of third-party resources that embed content on our website.
Accessibility on this website relies on the following technologies to work with the particular combination of web browsers and any assistive technologies or plugins installed on your computer:
These technologies are relied upon for conformance with the accessibility guidelines used.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) define 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. This website aims to conform with WCAG 2.1 level AA.
We remain dedicated to the ongoing enhancement of accessibility for our website and services.
Through our Digital Communications Strategy and Cancer Inequities Working Group, we are always striving to enhance the accessibility of all pages and materials on our website. It’s possible that some content has not yet been fully aligned with accessibility standards. This could be attributed to the fact that we may not have identified the most suitable fix to improve a user’s experience at the present time.
