COMPLIANCE STATUS

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to:

Non-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons:

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Some images do not have appropriate text descriptions, so people who cannot see images may not be able to understand the information they contain. This fails Success Criterion 1.1.1 (Non-text Content). We plan to fix this by 30 October 2020.

Audio-only content does not have a transcript of the spoken dialogue, so people who cannot hear the audio will not be able to understand it. This fails Success Criterion 1.2.1 (Audio-only and Video-only (Prerecorded)). We plan to fix this by 30 October 2020.

The way content is presented visually does not always match the way it is presented to screen readers, so people who cannot see the content may not understand how it is supposed to be structured. This fails Success Criterion 1.3.1 (Info and Relationships). We plan to fix this by .

The order content is presented visually does not always match the order it is presented to screen readers, so people who cannot see the content may miss out. This fails Success Criterion 1.3.2 (Meaningful Sequence). We plan to fix this by .

Instructions sometimes rely on sensory characteristics like position, location, or shape, so people who cannot see may not be able to follow the instruction properly. This fails Success Criterion 1.3.3 (Sensory Characteristics). We plan to fix this by .

Form fields that collect information about the person who is completing the form are not identified, so people who find identification difficult may not realise they are being asked for personal data. This fails Success Criterion 1.3.5 (Identify Input Purpose). We plan to fix this by .

Sometimes colour is the only way that information is communicated, so people who cannot see or perceive colours will not be aware of the information. This fails Success Criterion 1.4.1 (Use of Color). We plan to fix this by .

The contrast between the colour of text and the colour of the background it sits on is not always very good, so people with low vision may find it hard to read. This fails Success Criterion 1.4.3 (Color Contrast (Minimum)). We plan to fix this by .

In some places it is not possible to resize text or zoom in on content without some content becoming unavailable, so people with low vision may not be able to access all content. This fails Success Criterion 1.4.4 (Resize Text). We plan to fix this by .

Several images contain text, so people who use zoom or magnification may find the text becomes unreadable. This fails Success Criterion 1.4.5 (Images of Text). We plan to fix this by .

Content does not always reflow when viewed at high magnification, so people who use zoom or magnification may not be able to access content properly. This fails Success Criterion 1.4.10 (Reflow). We plan to fix this by .

The contrast between the colour of content and the background it sits on is not always enough, so people with low vision may find it hard to identify certain features. This fails Success Criterion 1.4.11 (Non-text Contrast). We plan to fix this by .

The line height and spacing of some text cannot be adjusted, so people who need to adapt the way text looks to make it easier to read may not be able to see everything properly. This fails Success Criterion 1.4.12 (Text Spacing). We plan to fix this by .

Content that appears when hovered on with a mouse or focused on with a keyboard is sometimes difficult to interact with, so people with dexterity difficulties may not be able to use it properly. This fails Success Criterion 1.4.13 (Content On Hover or Focus). We plan to fix this by .

Not all content can be used with a keyboard, so anyone who cannot use a mouse will not be able to use it. This fails Success Criterion 2.1.1 (Keyboard). We plan to fix this by .

Moving content cannot be paused or stopped, so people who find constantly moving content distracting may not be able to cope with it and people who find reading difficult may not be able to read all of the content before it moves on. This fails Success Criterion 2.2.2 (Pause, Stop, Hide). We plan to fix this by .

Pages do not provide a way to skip over repeated content on the page, so keyboard users will find it takes more effort to navigate to the part of the page they’re interested in. This fails Success Criterion 2.4.1 Bypass Blocks). We plan to fix this by .

It is not always possible to tell which interactive element has keyboard focus, so sighted keyboard users may get lost when navigating through content. This fails Success Criterion (2.4.7 (Focus Visible). We plan to fix this by .

The order of interactive elements like links and buttons is not always logical, so keyboard users may find the experience of navigating unexpected and confusing. This fails Success Criterion 2.4.3 (Focus Order). We plan to fix this by .

Even with the surrounding content, links do not always clearly indicate where they will lead, so someone who is unable to see the content may not be able to tell what will happen when they activate the link. This fails Success Criterion 2.4.4 (Link Purpose in Context). We plan to fix this by .

The visible label of interactive elements like links and buttons does not always match the label used by assistive technologies, so people using voice recognition software may not be able to interact with the element as expected. This fails Success Criterion 2.5.3 (Label in Name). We plan to fix this by .

Labels or instructions are not always provided for forms and form fields, so people who find completing complex tasks difficult may struggle to do so. This fails Success Criterion 3.3.2 (Labels and Instructions). We plan to fix this by .

The code that is used to create the website has errors that may cause accessibility problems, so people who use assistive technologies may find they behave in unexpected ways. This fails Success Criterion (4.1.1 (Parsing). We plan to fix this by .

The purpose and state of many features are not indicated to screen readers, so people who cannot see the content may not know what it is or what it is supposed to do. This fails Success Criterion 4.1.2 (Name, Role, Value). We plan to fix this by .

DISPROPORTIONATE BURDEN

Meeting WCAG 2.1 Level AA is not a disproportionate burden.

CONTENT NOT WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THE ACCESSIBILITY REGULATIONS

The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs published before  if they are not essential to providing our services.
