Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Compliance status

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.

Non-accessible content

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

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Videos do not have a suitable alternative for video or audio content, nor do they have subtitles, so are hard to use for people with sight or vision difficulties. This fails the WCAG criteria 1.2.1 (audio-only and video-only - pre-recorded) and 1.2.2 (captions - pre-recorded). We plan to add transcripts and captions to all videos throughout 2022.

A few links do not have a clear purpose based on the link text, this can be confusing for people as the links are unclear. This fails WCAG criterion 2.4.4 (link purpose - in context). We plan to address these links in March 2022.
