Designed to be accessible

Challenge

The Victorian Government Department of Treasury and Finance operates eight websites for its various functions. The fractured nature of these websites made it difficult for the public and government staff to access various content and tools.

Approach

The DTF has consolidated these sites into an integrated super-site to promote simple and efficient access to online information and services. Working with Fluid Design, Alliance produced a set of front-end templates for the public display of all website content.

Taking a modular approach to the design and development allowed DTF to have flexibility to suit the wide range of content requirements whilst creating a unified interface.

Being a government department the website must be fully accessible to all members of the public. All development was produced to WCAG 2.0 standard. This allows users with disabilities and visual impairments to have a quality experience, accessing all website content and functions.

Results

Template design and development has been completed, passing strict third party accessibility audits.
