Web Standards

The website content works with assistive technologies that visitors might use, such as screen readers or text only browsers.

Auditing

We undertake accessibility audits of the platform before every major update using WCAG 2.1 AA standards which guide our long term audit and improvement plans.

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 likely to create a barrier, we’ll state a reason, warn users and offer alternatives. See our known accessibility issues.

If we have failed to identify a barrier, please contact us.
