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.

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 classed as non-accessible for the following reasons.

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Not all images or components of forms have appropriate alt text or text labels. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (Non-text Content).

Some text and background combinations don’t have enough contrast - especially section ‘tags’. They don’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.3 (contrast - minimum). We are working on these.

Some blocks of navigation text are not easily distinguished. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1 (Info and Relationships - H48). Links within text should be distinguished by more than just colour. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.1 (use of colour). We are looking at ways to improve this

Our abbreviations aren’t fully accessible to screen readers. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 3.1.4 (abbreviations). We are investigating what can be done to improve our abbreviations.

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

Whenever new features are released they must meet WCAG 2.1 AA. We’re also committed to working on the issues above - some of these issues can be dealt with by making changes to mark-up or by modifying the sites' CSS, but others may require redesign of the underlying templates.
