Accessibility statement for the Tadmarton Village Hall Website

 

This website is run by Tadmarton Parish Council. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website.

For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts

  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen

  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard

  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software

  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

 

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Tadmarton 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.

 

 

Compliance status

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to ‘the non-compliances’ listed below.

 

 

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Some images within PDF files (eg the Link) 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).

They may also not be structured so they’re accessible to a screen reader. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 (name, role value).

 

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

 

PDFs and other documents

The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services.  For example, we do not plan to fix old copies of “The Link” magazine.

Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.

Preparation of this accessibility statement

This website was last tested in July 2020. The test was carried out on the request of Tadmarton Parish Council by a local resident (Mark Yeomans) who is a retired IT Senior Manager and manages the Website for the community.

The entire website was reviewed but only recent PDF files were examined.

You can read the full accessibility test report by clicking here. A comment is added under each success criteria with “PASS”, “FAIL” or “NOT ACHIEVED”.

Not Achieved – stated where the website does not contain an example of the item requiring to be tested and hence is deemed to conform.
