At Computershare we're trying to make everything we do online usable and accessible for everyone.

To help us get there we're using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. These global guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and user friendly for everyone.

The guidelines have three levels of accessibility (A, AA and AAA), and the Computershare site has been designed to meet AA standards.​
