We strive to make the cbd.moregoldcoast.com.au accessible in compliance with internationally recognised World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) web accessibility standards.

If you encounter web accessibility difficulties, please contact us.

Site requirements

While the website has been designed to provide access to a variety of technologies and browsers, some visitors may encounter visual differences or technical issues depending on the operating system and browser used.

As a result, we recommend visitors ensure they are using a standards-compliant browser. Where possible, we prefer to provide information and services in HTML format to ensure maximum accessibility. However, sometimes it is more accessible to provide some documents in Adobe Portable Document (PDF) format.

Adobe PDF

To view or print PDF documents you will need the software Adobe Acrobat Reader, which can be downloaded free of charge from www.adobe.com. Please note there are known issues using old versions of Adobe Acrobat reader.

If you are experiencing a blank screen being displayed when clicking on the link text of a PDF document, one of the following options can resolve the problem:

  • download the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader free of charge from www.adobe.com
  • save the PDF document by right clicking your mouse on the link text, select “Save Target As” and save the PDF document to your preferred location; once saved to your preferred location you can view or print the PDF document.

Converting PDF documents to a more accessible format

To convert PDF documents to HTML or plain text formats use the Online conversion tools provided by Adobe at www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/access_onlinetools.html.
