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
Some text and background combinations don't have enough contrast - especially section 'tags'. They don't meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.3 (contrast - minimum). We are working on these.
Heading order doesn't clearly reflect the structure of the page in some sections. This does not meet WCAG success criterion 1.3.1 (info and relationships). We are working on these.
Some of our form fields are marked up incorrectly. For example, because some form fields are missing a 'form' label. This doesn't meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.6 (headings and labels). We are working on these.
Content that's not within scope of the accessibility regulations
Older PDFs and other documents
The accessibility regulations don't require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they're not essential to providing our services.
The accessibility regulations don't require us to provide transcripts for recordings published before 23 September 2020. Though we will provide them for new podcasts, we won't provide them for podcasts published before September 2019.
How we tested this website
An internal accessibility check was conducted in the middle of 2020. We are currently working through the recommendations.
What we are doing to improve accessibility
Whenever new features are released they must meet WCAG 2.1 AA. We're also committed to working on the issues above.
