The ACMA aims to make information on its website accessible to all users. If you are having difficulty accessing or reading information, please contact us and we will arrange to get the information to you in another form.

Document format

Documents on this website are available in both Portable Document Format (PDF) and Rich Text Format (RTF).

You need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view PDFs. It is available as a free download from the Adobe website. The Accessibility Resource Centre at Adobe provides a number of tools that can help people who use speech readers to read the content of PDF documents. These tools work by converting PDF documents to text readable by speech readers. These tools are free of charge and most require no downloading of files.

Rich Text Format documents can be opened in most major word processing programs, like Microsoft Word and WordPerfect.

Translating and Interpreting Service

For information in another language, call 131 450 from anywhere in Australia, for the cost of a local call. The Translating and Interpreting Service can call the ACMA on your behalf.

Disability-related needs

Commonwealth departments and agencies are required by the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 to ensure that online information and services are accessible by people with disabilities.

This website has been designed to meet the Government Online Standards, including those that relate to access for people with disabilities. The design draws on the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

Please contact the ACMA if you would like to discuss how your individual needs may best be met.
