Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Video

Some videos on our website do not have the required caption controls or transcriptions available. The regulations don't require us to publish fully accessible video content until new content is created after September 2020 (WCAG: 1.2.2, 1.2.3, 1.2.4).

We will add caption controls and transcriptions over time as we review each page.

PDF and Microsoft Office Documents

Some of our older PDFs, Word documents and Powerpoint presentations do not meet accessibility standards - for example, they may not be marked up so they are accessible to a screen reader. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 (name, role value). Any new PDFs or Microsoft Office documents we publish should meet accessibility standards.

Form Elements

Some of the form elements do not have labels, failing WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 and 1.3.1. This issue is currently being fixed and will meet WCAG 2.1 AA conformance during 2020.

Contrast Issues

Some pages contain elements with low contrast between the element and its background. This can cause text to be difficult to read, especially for those with low vision, poor eyesight, or colour blindness (WCAG: 1.4.3).

We will correct the contrast on these issues over time as we review each page.

Archived News and Statistics Pages

There are older archived pages that to not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 3.1.1 (language of a page). We will decide whether to amend or remove these pages during 2020.
