It is responsible for making sure that we comply with the latest law related to public sector websites.

For example, that means you should be able to:
- change colours, contrast levels and fonts
- zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
- navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
- navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
- listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)
We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
How accessible is this website?
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 Level AA due to the exemptions the non-compliances and exemptions listed here:
- If you cannot see very well and use a screen reader to help you, some of our older versions of PDF and Word documents published before 23 September 2018 cannot be read by a screen reader. Providing they are not essential (in relation to our services) they are exempt.
- If you cannot hear very well, some of our older videos (that include speech) published before 23 September 2020 do not have captions to tell you what is being said. However, these are exempt.
Beyond the Scope of WCAG Level AA:
Because of their formal content some web pages and downloadable documents are not written in plain English. Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs as meeting papers for our Board meetings in public, with information on how users can access our services, and forms published as Word documents. We are currently in a programme of converting all our PDF and Word documents to HTML webpages.
