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.

The 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 non-accessible for the following reasons

Disproportionate burden

This section covers issues that we cannot fix right now. We’ve assessed the cost of fixing these issues but doing so would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the law due to the website likely undergoing rebuild within a year.

Links without meaningful purpose

Some of the links are labelled clearly. This means that links do not make sense when taken out of context, and for some links it’s not possible to know what the purpose of the link is. (WCAG: 2.4.4).

Focus Order

There are some forms on the website that do not follow logical focus order. (WCAG 2.4.3)

Keyboard Operation

All functionality of the content should be operable through keyboard (WCAG: 2.1.1)

Bypass Blocks

There is no option to skip to the main content on the page (WCAG: 2.4.1)

Text Sizing

Text sizing obscures some (WCAG: 1.4.4)

Heading Sequence

Some headings are out of sequence, pages display H3 tags before H2 etc. (WCAG: 2.4.10)

Contrast Issues

Some pages contain elements with low contrast between the element and its background, this included university logo images. This can cause text to be difficult to read, especially for those with low vision, poor eyesight, or colour blindness (WCAG: 1.4.3).

Resizing Text

Text when resized should not spill over its containers and not obscure other elements (WCAG: 1.4.4)

Alternative Text

Some images don’t contain text that describes them accurately. (WCAG: 1.4.5)
