David Wein recognises the importance of providing a website that is accessible to all our user groups, including those with disabilities. Our accessibility standards are in place with the intention of making the content accessible to the widest range of visitors, regardless of disability or impairment and by using techniques to help users of assistive and adaptive technologies we have provided one version of the site which everyone should be able to use.
It is our intention to provide as wide access as possible to this website. Should you experience any difficulties using the site we would very much like to hear about any such difficulties, so that we may take steps to rectify them. Please email us with details of the problem, the name and version of the browser you are using and, if possible, details of the operating system and screen settings you are using.
David Wein website is fully accessible to people with disabilities and obey the spirit of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) of 1995 with respect to the provision of services online, as required by the Disability Rights Commission (DRC). It conforms with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 (Level Double-A) specified by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and was tested against WCAG Priority 1,2,3 and U.S. Section 508 Guidelines by the WebXACT and Cynthia.

The website contains a number of support materials and publications in PDF format, but we also include HTML versions of all the major documents currently in PDF format. You may need an up-to-date verison of the Adobe Acrobat Reader, or similar PDF viewing software, in order to view and print some files. If you do not have the latest version installed, you can download it from the Adobe website. If you are not able to use Adobe Acrobat Reader you can use the online tool which converts PDF files to a format which can be used with screen-reading programs. To use Adobe's online tool:
This website uses cascading style sheets (CSS) for visual layout and presentation. The site is best viewed in a standards compliant web browser with proper stylesheet support, such as a recent version of Internet Explorer (5+), Netscape, Opera or Firefox. If you are using a browser which does not support style sheets (such as a PDA or text-only browser), or an older browser with poor stylesheet support (such as Netscape 4), the content of each page should still be fully accessible, but will be presented in plain-text format.
