Atlas is committed to making its website available to as
many people as possible. Many internet users can find
websites difficult to use due to the way they have been
designed. We recognise that this is an important issue
and are making changes to ensure that the Atlas website
is accessible in accordance with the World Wide Web
Consortium (W3C) guidelines. Changes to improve
accessibility are ongoing, but if you come across a page
you find difficult to use please let us know.

Many internet users with disabilities find websites difficult
or even impossible to use simply because of the way
they are designed. This website has been designed to be
as accessible as possible and to be compatible with the
types of adaptive technology used by people with disabilities,
including screen readers.
