More about CSIRO

This document details CSIRO's efforts to develop and maintain websites which comply with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA.
To ensure that all CSIRO websites are WCAG 2.0 Level AA compliant.
This applies to CSIRO’s internal and external websites.
CSIRO has a number of sites which remain online for information purposes only. These sites have been clearly marked as archives in accordance with the Australian Governments National Transition Strategy , for example The CSIRO Office of Space Science and Applications.
While we have invested strongly in providing an authoring model that guides and trains our authors to provide best practice in accessibility, there may be occurrences where users have difficulty accessing information from our website.
To assist with this, we have produced a page where people website users can request assistance, and linked it from the footer of every CSIRO.au web page.
In June 2014 we changed our search system to a different provider.
One difference in the new service is that in search result pages it provides previews of some document types other than web pages. These include PDF, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft PowerPoint files.
The previews appear when the user hovers over the link to the document. This functionality is not accessible. However it is merely an added feature based on the best practice standards for search. Removing it will not improve the accessibility of the site.
