Web Accessibility Conformance Statement

Revamp

We are committed to ensuring that our website conforms to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA requirements to the maximum extent possible. However, because our website will be re-developed in year 2013, at this point in time we are unable to incorporate all Level AA accessibility features. When the new website is up and running in year 2013, it will conform to all Level AA requirements.

Multi-Media

We are committed to ensuring that our website conforms to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA requirements to the maximum extent possible. However, as our website contains considerable multi-media contents, it is not possible to incorporate all Level AA accessibility requirements in all of them. Nonetheless, the multi-media contents are so located as not to affect the accessibility of significant contents in our website.

Archive Material

We are committed to ensuring that our website conforms to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA requirements to the maximum extent possible. However, as this website contains archive materials that are not frequently used, not all level accessibility features have been incorporated. For enquiry, please email us at enquiries@hk.science.museum. We will try our best to provide the information in a format accessible to you.

 

We are always keen to improve the accessibility of our website.  Should you have any views on or experience any difficulties in accessing information on our website, please contact us at 2732 3217 or by email at enquiries@hk.science.museum.
