This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliance and exemptions listed on our ‘Known Issues page’.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons:
Some images do not have a meaningful text alternative or sufficient captions, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1.
By October 2021, all images will have meaningful text alternative. Purely decorative images will have blank alternative text and infographics and charts will have a link to a full description of the content.
Some images include text as part of the image, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.5.
By October 2021, all images containing text will have a suitable text alternative to include the image text.
Some hyperlinks throughout websites have too low of contrast, which can result in text being difficult to read, especially for people with low vision, poor eyesight or colour blindness. Additionally, some hyperlinks are not sufficiently describe making it difficult to determine purpose when using screen reader. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.1.
All hyperlinks will have a standard 3:1 contract ratio and will be sufficiently described by October 2021.
Not all subheadings have been formatted correctly using styles, making the site more difficult for users of assistive technology such as screen readers to access. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1.
Ensure all subheading have been formatted using styles by October 2021.
Some menus, links, buttons, and other controls cannot be operated using the keyboard alone, which can cause problems for people who are blind, have low vision and/or hand tremors. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.1.1.
We are working with our developers (GitHub) to implement fixes for these keyboard operability issues over the coming months.
The CMS code is being checked to ensure that it meets the robust accessibility criteria 4.1.1, 4.1.2 & 4.1.3.
This will be done as part of an accessibility review of the GitHub Content Management System to be completed in Autumn 2020.
We do not consider any of the accessibility issues to be a disproportionate burden and aim to make the site fully compliant by October 2021.
Our site includes third party content and functionality. This may direct you to a related service, link to another site or supporting documentation. We are not responsible for the accessibility of third-party content or to other sites we link to.
- Google Calendar
- Mozilla GitHub
We will provide an accessible alternative to any third-party content that isn’t compliant.
We often create content which is hosted on third party platforms. This includes:
- Content we create for social media
- Data we supply to national databases
We are responsible for ensuring the content we supply meets accessibility requirements. However, we are not responsible for the accessibility of the platform itself.
We want to provide the best possible experience for all our website visitors. To achieve this, we will:
- Fix known issues
- Check all new features in the GitHub and WIN Content Management System (CMS), which is used to create this website, for accessibility before they are made available
- Check all new content for accessibility
- Train all content editors on accessibility
- Carry out periodic accessibility checks involving WIN’s accessibility forum, WIN Access
