Do you get angry when you have to go from website to website to find accommodation and/or a leisure venue which meets your personal requirements.
Well, now you do not have to ‘surf the web’ to find these facilities. www.australiaforall.com is an international web site designed by and for people with disabilities, which is devoted entirely to accommodation and leisure venues which are accessible to people with disabilities. For ease of use it has been constructed based on the following criteria:
The home page identifies the goals and motivates the user to explore further.
The success of the web site is dependent on an individual’s capacity to use a computer and understand the information available.
The website is designed to be used by a person with less than an average level of skill.
The website has only a few menus and links and is easy to navigate.
The information provided is practical and is of interest to both the tourist and the provider.
Maps are used to assist in finding general locations, enabling users to choose places within a particular geographic area. This obviates the need for excessive use of the mouse.
For tourists who use mobility aids all accommodation providers have provided digital photographs of one of the toilet/shower areas attached to the wheelchair accessible accommodation offered.
Restaurants seeking inclusion on the web site are requested to confirm that they have a step-less entry and a wheelchair accessible toilet either within or attached to the restaurant.
When available, equipment for people with hearing and/or vision impairments, is indicated via the icons found at the top of each panel
Tourist providers who make-up this web site are monitored as closely as possible. It is only available to those providers who offer facilities (especially in the toilet/shower areas) which are considered to be accessible to people with disabilities.
Legislation in many countries is non-existent. However in countries where there is some legislation, it is not always possible to guarantee a tourism provider’s compliance. In countries where legislation is enforced we seek assurance that the facilities offered for people with disabilities, are compliant with that legislation.
The website identifies accommodation and/or leisure facilities accessible to people with disabilities in 60 countries.
