Technical information about this website’s accessibility
UAL 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 images may not have alternative (alt) text descriptions while other decorative and spacer images may not have null alternative text. This fails WCAG Success Criterion 1.1.1 Non-text Content (Level A). We plan to add alt text to all of our images from January 2022 onwards.
- The colour contrast of the text on some of the pages pages does not meet the minimum required colour contrast ratio of 4.5:1 for normal text in some parts of the website. This fails WCAG Success Criterion 1.4.3: Contrast (Minimum) (Level AA). The website is currently being redesigned and the changes to the design are due to go live in January 2022 which will fix this problem.
What we’re doing to improve accessibility
This is the beta version of our website and we will re-designing and re-platform the site in late 2021. As part of that re-design we will ensure that the designs we create and the content with add meet the WCAG 2.1 AA guidelines.
