Services Australia is committed to making myGov an accessible and inclusive website anyone can use, regardless of their device or ability.
This includes being able to:

- increase magnification
- navigate most of the website using only your keyboard or speech recognition software
- listen to most of the website using a screen reader.
We're always improving the accessibility of myGov and exploring ways to make it easy for you to get information.
