Template Supplier Accessibility Statement

The statement was created by FEHE DAWG members (James Church, George Rhodes, Abi James, Alistair McNaught, Ben Watson, Rohan Slaughter and Kellie Mote) and adapted from the Government Digital Service sample statement.

 

We are hoping that the use of a standardised statement will further support the public sector initiative led by Jisc, make it easier for us to share the statements we create and encourage suppliers to help us by creating compliant accessibility statements for their own content by default.

Web Standards

Our website is developed using valid HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript to the standards laid out in the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1) - Level AA.

 

The website content works with assistive technologies that visitors might use, such as screen readers or text only browsers.

Auditing

We undertake accessibility audits of the platform before every major update using WCAG 2.1 AA standards which guide our long term audit and improvement plans.

What we do about known issues

We work to achieve and maintain WCAG 2.1 AA standards, but it is not always possible for all our content to be accessible. Where content is likely to create a barrier, we’ll state a reason, warn users and offer alternatives. Learn more about our known accessibility issues.

 

If we have failed to identify a barrier, please contact us.
