Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Littlebourne Parish Council 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 (https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG21/) 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 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 all text alternatives by December 2020. When we publish new content we’ll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.
Navigation and accessing information
There’s no way to skip the repeated content in the page header
There are colour contrast issues between foreground and background on some pages
There are some link names that are not descriptive enough
The moving photo montage on the Home page is not fully accessible
Interactive tools and transactions
Not relevant to our site
We only provide forms that require printing and completing rather than interactive forms.
There are no transactions available on our site.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
PDF’s and other documents
Some of our PDF’s and word documents are essential to providing our services. The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDF’s or other documents published before 23 September 2018 (http://www.legislation.go.uk/uksi/2018/952/regulation/4/made) if they’re not essential to providing our services.
We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations (http://www.legislation.go.uk/uksi/2018/952/regulation/4/made).
What we’re doing to improve accessibility
We will aim to carry out the below within 6 months of adopting this policy:
New images loaded onto the website will have text alternatives and existing ones will have the text added.
The colour contrast issues will be rectified.
Links will have discernible text (those added and those existing will be amended)
The moving photo montage will be removed and replaced with static images with text alternatives.
