Technical information about this website’s accessibility
The University of Worcester 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 listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
Some controls do not have a corresponding label. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content), 1.3.1 (info and relationships), 2.4.6 (headings and labels) and 3.3.2 (labels or instructions). We will update the relevant labels in the next site update by September 2022.
Some buttons are empty or have no value text. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criteria 1.1.1 (non-text content), 1.3.1 (info and relationships), and 2.4.4 (link purpose). We are reviewing the current theme to address this problem for the next site update in September 2022.
Some images and text have insufficient contrast. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.3 (contrast – minimum). We will redesign these site elements to conform to current regulations in the next site update in September 2022.
Mobile menu is not accessible to by keyboard or to screen readers. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criteria 2.1.1 Navigation menu is not accessible to by keyboard or to screen readers. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criteria 2.1.1 (keyboard), or 4.1.2 (name, role, value). We will look at replacing this interface element with a compliant version by September 2022.
Some ARIA element IDs are identical. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criteria 4.1.1 (Parsing). We will fix this issue in the next update for September 2022.
