Technical information


This website is partially compliant with theWeb Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1AA标准,由于下面列出的不合格。

Non-accessible content

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Some multimedia contains slight inaccuracies in what is conveyed through closed captions compared to spoken audio. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content). We plan to amend inaccuracies in closed captions for multimedia by 2022When we publish new multimedia we’ll make sure our use of captions meets accessibility standards.

Transcripts may be absent from prerecorded audio and prerecorded multimedia. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criteria 1.2.1 (audio-only and video-only) and 1.2.3 (audio description or media alternative). We have added options for our content editors to add transcripts, but you still may find videos and podcasts without transcripts. We plan to add transcripts to all podcasts and videos by 2022.

Our podcasts may be difficult to use by assistive technology such as screen readers and as a result may fail multiple success criteria in WCAG 2.1. We are liaising with our podcast service to resolve the underlying accessibility issues with the podcast media player. We plan to resolve accessibility problems in the podcast media player by 2022. We are also changing our procurement processes to make sure that podcast services are accessible by default.

Sharing some of our pages through the social media tools on our website may be difficult to use by people with assistive technology and may fail multiple success criteria in WCAG 2.1. We are liaising with the sharing service to ensure these accessibility problems are resolved by 2022. We are also changing our procurement processes to make sure that podcast services are accessible by default.

Content not within the scope of the accessibility regulations


Many of our older PDFs and Word documents do not meet accessibility standards - for example, they may not be structured so they’re accessible to a screen reader. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 (name, role value).

Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs with information on how users can access our services, and forms published as Word documents. By September 2020, we plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.

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