Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Jisc is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

Compliance status

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

Some text and background combinations in the page footer don’t have enough contrast. They don’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.3 (contrast - minimum). We are working on these.

Some of our interactive forms are difficult to navigate using a keyboard because some form controls are missing a ‘label’ tag. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 (name, role value). We plan to resolve this in 2020.

Our Search History may be difficult for assistive technologies to parse because of duplicate id attributes. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.1 (parsing). We plan to resolve this in 2020.

Problems with the ARIA element may make some pages difficult to navigate. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 (name, role value). We plan to resolve this in 2020.

How we tested this website

The website was last tested in September 2020. The test was carried out by Jisc.

We tested all service interface pages and supporting web pages.

Further testing is also planned during 2020 and we will respond to any recommendations that arise from that work.

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

We will carry our automated testing of new features to avoid introducing accessbility problems. We will undertake regular service testing and respond to any accessibility issues identified. We’re also committed to working on the issues above.
