Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Anglia Ruskin University is committed to making its website 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.
Non accessible content
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non compliance with the accessibility regulations
In a small number of instances, such as tables, html is used to format content. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1 (Info and relationships). We plan to fix this by January 2021.
On some pages WAI-ARIA landmarks are not named. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1 (Info and relationships). We plan to fix this by January 2021.
On a small number of pages there are heading tags which are missing text. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1 (Info and relationships). We plan to fix this by January 2021.
Our video content does not contain audio descriptions. We’ve assessed the cost of implementing these. We believe that doing so now would be a disproportionate burdenwithin the meaning of the accessibility regulations. We will make an assessment on an ongoing basis as new video content is commissioned.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
PDFs and other documents
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.
The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services.
- There are a series of PDFs on our 3rd Sector Future pages from conferences run between 2014 & 2017 which do not meet requirements, these are not business critical and we are not obliged to fix these as they were uploaded before 23 September 2018
- There are a series of back issues of the Faculty of Science and Engineering research magazine ‘First’ which are not fully accessible to screenreaders. These are not business critical and we are not obliged to fix these as they were uploaded before 23 September 2018
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
What we’re doing to improve accessibility
We have a rolling programme of updating the content and design of this website in accordance with the guidelines set out by the WCAG. We will continue to assess and improve our accessibility based on these guidelines, user testing and user feedback.
