As part of our efforts to reach people with limited mobility and accessibility, we have designed the Ministry of Labour portal with enhanced features to ease their experience.
The following are some of the features on our portal that aim to benefit people with different abilities:
The Ministry of Labour exclusively follows the recommendations laid down by World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to maintain the website structure, navigation, look and feel, in order for you have a pleasant visit to our portal.
For those with poor visual ability to read text and view images, you can use the ‘Zoom’ option from your browser to enlarge the page. You can change the page size by clicking on the ‘View’ menu, then click on ‘Zoom’ to adjust the page size according to your needs.
Text to Speech
For those with visual impairments, or those who wish to avoid eyestrain, our portal offers allows you to listen to the content instead of reading it.
