W3C Disability Access
The Office of The Prime Minister Website offers some features to assist the visitors who might need some adjustments to the original content so that they could access the information they needed in their best form. This is to conforms with the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) mission, that is to make the Web accessible to people with disabilities.
The current features we have are :
1. Text resizer - Resize the font size if you need it bigger or smaller to ease your reading. You could find it at the right portion of our banner (below the language tool).
2. Color selection - Change the theme color of the website to make it more visible for those who had colour blind vision. You could find it at the right portion of the banner (near text resizer).
3. Text reader - Read the text on the website, especially the speeches, the news, and some of the other contents. The reader reads the text automatically and the computer generated speech will be produced so that those who had problems reading our content could still get it when they listen to it. You can use either :
(a) Internal text reader - When browsing the website, you will find the sound.png icon at the right-top of the content box. Click on the icon and a box will appear. Please wait for a while for the page to load. You can hear the speech as well as download the generated mp3 from the page. Please take note that the load time might be longer if the text to be processed is longer. Please also take note that the sound may not be precisely pronounce and currently only processed the English word correctly.
(b) Third party text reader - Use third party text reader such as Text-Speech, Speakonia, ReadPlease and others.
