Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Jisc is committed to making its websites accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
- If a video has captions, we do not always provide a separate transcript or audio description as well. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.2.1 (audio-only and video-only - prerecorded)
- Not all videos have edited, synchronised captions, which does not meet WCAG success criterion 1.2.2 (captions - prerecorded) – in these instances, a downloadable transcript will be available instead
- When resizing text to 200%, the page breadcrumb navigation text is clipped. This does not meet WCAG 1.4.4 (resize text)
- We do not currently provide audio descriptions for all prerecorded video content. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.2.5 (audio description -prerecorded)
- Some functionality of the cookie banner is not available on 600-700 pixel wide screens when text is resized without assistive technology up to 200 percent. This fails WCAG success criterion 1.4.4 (Resize text)
- Removing styling (CSS) on pages causes enlarged icons to appear, which can make it difficult to navigate and read content. This causes a minor CSS dependence issue
We embed YouTube videos on the site. We know there are accessibility issues with this feature. We don't have accessible alternatives and, as we don't control the platform, are unable to make the changes required to improve them. Let us know if you would like an accessible version of any video we put live, we will send it through to you.
We use Hotjar to better understand our users’ needs and optimise the experience of this website. We don't have a suitable alternative and, as we don't control the platform, are unable to make the changes required to improve it. We are aware of a number of accessibility issues - particularly with buttons - detailed in full below.
What we’re doing to improve accessibility
Whenever new features are released they must meet the WCAG 2.1 AA standard. We’re also committed to working on the issues above. We will update this page when issues are fixed.
