Policy Partners Project 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 non-compliances and exemptions listed below.
Some images do not have a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content).
We plan to add text alternatives for all images that contain vital information. When we publish new content we’ll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.
Some of our interactive elements supplied by 3rd party developers/features, such as forms or recaptcha boxes, may be more difficult to navigate using a keyboard. For example, because some form controls are missing a ‘label’ tag.
Where we rely on 3rd party developers for key features we will work alongside them to develop and install any accessibility improvements that can be made to those features.
Some of our content is supported by, or links out to, PDFs and Word documents supplied by other sources. We will aim, where possible, to ensure any linked documents (created post-September 2018) in our control will be accessible.
