Despite our best efforts to ensure accessibility of Wayfound Victoria, there may be some limitations. Below is a description of known limitations, and potential solutions. Please contact us if you observe an issue not listed below.
Known limitations for Wayfound Victoria:

This is due to resizing of images to fit smaller screens. Further accessibility of the mobile version of the website will be considered during the next review. For best viewing we suggest visiting our website on a desktop computer.
