Accessibility tool for online access
For anyone who has difficulty typing, moving a mouse or reading a web page, we recommend using an assistive technology like eSSENTIAL Accessibility.
You can download eSSENTIAL Accessibility for free. This software provides a variety of accessibility features like keyboard and mouse replacements to help make the web accessible.
It can be used on a standard PC by anyone with dexterity limitations.

The Australian Government's free Translating and Interpreter Service can help you to communicate with us. This service is available in over 150 languages. We can arrange this service when you call us or visit us in branch. If the interpreters are helping other customers when you call, we can arrange a call back for you.
Use our branch locator to find an accessible branch near you.
If you need an AUSLAN interpreter, we can arrange this before your arrival. Please get in touch to let us know.
