Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
Video and audio content
We aim for all our video content to have at least one of the following:
- A transcript
We know some of our video content – particularly older videos - does not consistently have subtitles. We are working on this.
Our website features downloadable resources, mainly Word documents and PDFs. We will work toward making sure that all downloadable resources are accessible and will investigate moving away from using PDF format documents in the future.
We have tested the accessibility of the website's colour palette. Most colours conform with WCAG 2.1 Level AA. We are in the process of changing the colours that do not.
Third party content
Our site includes Third Party Content and functionality. Unfortunately, we cannot always guarantee its accessibility. For more information about Third Party Content on our website, please visit our policies pages.
Our site is regularly reviewed with manual audits by our internal content teams and by scans with automated testing tools. In addition, an accessibility audit was conducted in May 2021 to help identify accessibility improvements.
This statement was prepared in July 2019. It was last reviewed in December 2022.
