#d0490c About us
All colour use on the Oranga Tamariki website takes into consideration users who have visual impairments, and environments that affect their use such as bright sunlight or printing pages.
All use of colour on the Oranga Tamariki website adheres to the WCAG 2.1 Colour contrast criteria as per the New Zealand Government Web Standards.
We use the Webaim colour contrast checker to ensure that the contrast between text colour and background meets these requirements.
Meaning and way finding
Colour is used to enhance the usability and design of the site, and is not relied on to communicate meaning. Links are underlined or displayed in panels or as buttons to specify that they are links - colour is not the only indicator.
