Canberra Community Law is committed to making sure access to accessible content is possible for all our clients and community workers. This is why for Microsoft Windows computers we recommend the free NVDA screen reader software. This screen reader is available in 43 languages.
Vision Australia also has a list of recommended screen reading software on their website that may be more suitable for business and high end users.
Easy English Content
At Canberra Community Law it is important to us that all members of the community be able to access content in a format that suits them. This is why we have recently adopted the emerging Easy English standard. This format uses simple, short phrasing generous line spacing and informative graphics to help members of the community with intellectual disabilities get the help they need.
Currently our brochures are available in Easy English. We aim to convert more of our documents to the Easy English format in the future.

Canberra Community Law has an accessible entrance ramp and accessible meeting rooms available for our clients.
