Digitop Toolkit Accessibility Statement ( last updated 30th Sept 2022 )

Scope of statement

This accessibility statement covers the Digitop Toolkit website only and applies to all pages under the following domain https://digitop.ac.uk/ 

Using this website

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

  • use accessibility landmarks to jump to sections of our web pages with screen reading technology
  • 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 attempted to make 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 this website is

We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible:

  • The majority of video content on this website has the ability to display closed captions but we currently do not provide transcripts of the audio content from these videos ( we aim to address this in 2022 )
  • Third party social media widgets embedded within our pages are not fully accessible ( specifically colour contrast of some elements does not meet required accessibility standards and duplicate HTML IDs may possibly confuse some assistive technologies )
  • As far as possible complex images have accompanying text descriptions so that the information portrayed can be understood without seeing the image. In some cases it is possible that some of the context of the image may not be fully understood from the text description alone.

How we tested this website

This website has been audited for compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) V2.1 level AA. Further actions will be driven by the outcome of this activity. 

We use a combination of automated testing tools and manual testing/evaluation to check the accessibility of the website.
