How accessible the website is

We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • Navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • Listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver).
  • Resize to the size of your window, and display a readable text size whichever device you are using
  • Zoom in up to 200% without the text spilling off the screen

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

What we do about known issues

We work to achieve and maintain WCAG 2.1 AA standards, but it is not always possible for all our content to be accessible. Where content is not accessible, we will state a reason, warn users and offer alternatives.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

UKSCL 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 known issues listed below.

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

  • Website drop-down navigation content is not navigable using a keyboard. Users can navigate to all content via the alternative on-page section navigation links and the site map.
  • Duplicate item IDs are used for the PC and mobile navigation buttons. Only one set of navigation is rendered to the user at any given time. The item functions for both sets are identical.
  • Social media icons do not have alt attributes. The relevant information is identified and described by the ‘Title’ attribute of the surrounding link code.
  • Social media icons do not have a visual outline on focus via keyboard navigation.
