The Launceston City Council and QVMAG is committed to ensuring its website is accessible to everyone. The Council is striving to ensure all pages on its website conform to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0). These can be viewed here.
The Launceston City Council has Browse Aloud available on all of its websites as one way of meeting several of these requirements.
BrowseAloud makes websites more accessible and reader-friendly to those who require online reading support. It works by reading web pages aloud in a natural-sounding voice. BrowseAloud can also read text published in a Portable Document Format (PDF).
BrowseAloud is free to website visitors and can be easily downloaded from the BrowseAloud website.

The font size on the QVMAG's website can be made larger by clicking the toggle font size button (A A A) at the top of each page.
The text only site map at the bottom of the home page provides links to each area of the site in a more accessible format.
A text description has been added to each meaningful image on the QVMAG's website.
Launceston Access Advisory Committee (LAAC)
The LAAC addresses the needs of a wide group of people in the Launceston municipality, especially those with disabilities, seniors and families with young children.
The LAAC is supported by the Launceston City Council through its access policy and is made up of representatives from community organisations and Council employees.
