Compliance status

Non-accessible content

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Keyboard access to information

  • The Cookie and Privacy Policy tab in the footer is not accessible via the keyboard only. However, the information and functions provided by the Cookie and Privacy Policy tab are accessible in the standard page footer. (Fails WCAG 2.1.1 however, there is an alternative solution for visitors using assistive technologies such as screen readers).

Contact Forms

  • Status messages are presented to the user by assistive technologies without receiving focus, however, specific field validation shown on the screen does not get passed to assistive technologies. (Partially fails WCAG2.1 4.1.3)

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

PDFs and other documents

The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services. For example, we do not plan to fix meeting agendas, minutes or other historical records published before that date.

Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.

Live video

We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

We will then focus on ensuring that the website works well with NVDA Screen Reader for Windows, VoiceOver for Apple products and Talkback for Android products in addition to monitoring WCAG accessibility non-compliance each year.
