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

On the Create page, the SiteImprove Accessibility Checker plugin throws several errors: “Image with no alt attribute” (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 A standard), “Text area has no description” (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 A standard), and “Form elements are not grouped” (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 A standard). Unfortunately, these issues cannot be resolved, because the code is generated by a third-party plug-in and we don’t have control over HTML.

In addition, on several other pages, the Accessibility Checker indicates that the “Bold" tag used to format text, expecting a semantic <strong> tag instead. The <b> tag is embedded through a Wagtail richtext editor and cannot be controlled, unless the Wagtail rich text editor is customised.
