The following links include the outlook video, transcript and links to current and previous outlook text pages. The text pages include summaries and some static maps. The summaries identify key map characteristics and current climate influences. Outlook details for selected locations and periods will optimised for screenreaders in the next development iteration of the new interactive map page.
The climate outlooks functionality consists of two panels: the Menu panel and the Content panel. Making a selection in the Menu panel changes the content in the Content panel.
When the selected content is a map, a text based search function is located before the map. Submitting a location via this search will display the value (for example temperature or rainfall) for the location. Most maps are also preceded with a set of time period buttons. The default period is for 3 month outlooks.
Both panels start with a level 2 heading, so you can jump between the two headings by pressing the 2 key for most screen readers.
