Ensuring easy access to the site for all users is important to Engineers Without Borders Australia so please contact us if you have difficulties using this site or if you have any further comments or questions. We are continually evolving and assessing the accessibility standards and making the appropriate changes where feasible.

Standards compliance

The EWB Australia website has been built according to HTML 4.01 Transitional specifications and conforms to Web Consortium Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) priority 1 and 2 checkpoints.

Page design and layout is controlled by Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and has been written according to the CSS 2.1 specifications.

Structured and meaningful Hypertext Mark-up Language (HTML) has been used to assist users accessing the site via non-visual means, such as users of screen-reading software.


The primary navigation is a set of simple text menus that provide quick and easy access to the site's major content areas. These menus are text-based lists and will still work for users using alternative browsing technologies, or who have javascript and/or Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) disabled.

Technical requirements

Visual design has been optimised for monitors set at 1024 by 768 pixels resolution with 16-bit colour depth. The site will still function for users on other settings but it may not be as visually appealing.

JavaScript is used throughout this site. However, where possible, site content should still be accessible to users with JavaScript disabled.
