Accessibility

Contrast

All colour use on the Practice Centre takes into consideration users who have visual impairments, and environments that affect their use such as bright sunlight or printing pages. 

All use of colour on the Practice Centre adheres to the WCAG 2.1 Colour contrast criteria as per the New Zealand Government Web Standards.

NZ Government Web Standards

We use the Webaim colour contrast checker to ensure that the contrast between text colour and background meets these requirements.

Meaning and way finding

Colour is used to enhance usability and design, and is not relied on to communicate meaning. Links are underlined or in panels so colour is not the only indicator.
