Technical information about this website’s accessibility
The Leverhulme Centre for Demographic Science 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 under ‘Non-Accessible Content’.
Accessibility Known Issues
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Some images do not have an appropriate text equivalent. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content). We plan to have text equivalents available for images by September 2021.
Some images contain text. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.5 (images of text). We plan to update these images by September 2021.
Pages do not ‘reflow’ to a single column. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.10 (reflow). We are exploring potential development fixes to resolve this issue.
Not all interaction and functionality is usable with a keyboard or touch-screen. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.1.2 Keyboard (A). We are exploring potential development fixes to resolve this issue.
It is not possible to pause, stop or hide some moving content on the site. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.2.2 (Pause, stop, hide). We are exploring alternative content to resolve this issue.
The purpose of some links are not clear from the link text. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.4 (link purpose). We plan to ensure any new content on the site uses clear link text and we are reviewing archived articles.
This website includes just one way to navigate content. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.5 (multiple ways). We plan to review the structure and explore implementing a second navigational option.
Some of the PDFs on this site do not meet accessibility standards, for example, they may not be marked up so that they’re accessible to a screen reader. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 (name, role, value). If you experience any difficulties accessing these documents, please email our Centre Manager Antoinette Moffa at the Leverhulme Centre for Demographic Science, email: .
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
Our site includes third party content and functionality. This may direct you to a related service, link to another site or supporting documentation. We are not responsible for the accessibility of third-party content or to other sites we link to.
Third party platforms
We often create content which is hosted on third party platforms. We are responsible for ensuring the content we supply meets accessibility requirements; however, we are not responsible for the accessibility of the platform itself.
What we’re doing to improve accessibility
We want our website to offer the best experience possible for all of our users. As well as our plan to fix known issues we will continue to work on our website content and structure.
