Technical information about this website's accessibility

Jisc is committed to making its websites 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-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons:

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

We have not marked up the web pages into a proper structure and/or identification of page regions/landmarks to aid navigation. This means we do not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.1 (Bypass blocks). We are working on adding page regions to each page.

Some of our forms are not labelled. This means we fail WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.6 (Headings and Labels) and 1.1.1 (Non-text Content) and 3.3.2 (Labels or instructions). We will add meaningful labels to forms.

We have table header elements that contain no text, this means screen reader users may not understand the context of tables. This means we do not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1 (Info and Relationships). We will work to add correct table headers to all tables.

Some of our images contain alternative text that is unhelpful or missing. This means we fail WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (Non-Text Content). We will work to add useful alternative text to all images.

We have not adequately described and grouped buttons and checkboxes using framesets, doing this means it is harder for screen readers to make sense of the web page function. This means we do not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 3.3.2 (Labels or Instructions). We are working on adding framesets and labels to our web pages.

We have some 'onclick' events that do not have a corresponding keyboard equivalent. This means that keyboard users are not being treated the same. This means we do not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.1.1 (Keyboard). We will work to add an event so that keyboard users are treated the same.

We have some form controls that are not properly labelled, making it difficult for screen reader users to make sense of their purpose. This means we do not meet 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 work to add meaningful labels to all our form controls.

Disproportionate Burden

This section covers issues that we cannot fix right now. We have assessed the cost of fixing these issues but believe that doing so would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the law.

We have used a table layout to position text whereas tables should be for presenting tabular data. This means we do not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1 (Info and Relationships) and 1.3.2 (Meaningful Sequence). Rewriting InFuse to stop using tables for layout would mean a complete rewrite of the whole application. We do not at present have funding to do this, however, we will be working on a successor to InFuse that would have WCAG 2.1 compliance built in.

What we are doing to improve accessibility

We will be working on tackling the accessibility issues listed above and any other issues that are found on this site.
