Accessibility Statement for the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging Website

The Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging (WIN) is committed to providing an accessible web presence that gives members of the public and members of the WIN community full access to centre information, courses and activities offered publicly through the web. Our Equality Policy outlines our commitment to a culture which maintains a working, learning and social environment in which the rights and dignity of all its staff and students are respected. 

This accessibility statement applies to University of Oxford, Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging website – www.win.ox.ac.uk

Our Aims

This website is run by WIN’s administrative team. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • Change colours, contrast levels and fonts 
  • Zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen 
  • Navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • Navigate most of the website using speech recognition software 
  • Listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)
  • View accurate captions and transcripts for videos posted on website

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

How accessible this website

We are aware that some parts of our website are not fully accessible. These include:

Enforcement procedure

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the ‘accessibility regulations’). If you’re not happy with how we respond to your complaint, contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS).

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

The Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging, University of Oxford 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-compliance and exemptions listed on our ‘Known Issues page’. 

Known Issues page

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations. The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons:

Issues with Content Management System (CMS)

  • The CMS code is being checked to ensure that it meets the robust accessibility criteria 4.1.1, 4.1.2 & 4.1.3.

This will be undertaken as part of an accessibility upgrade of the Haiku Content Management System to be completed in Autumn 2022.

  • Hyperlinks throughout website have a low contrast, which can result in text being difficult to read, especially for people with low vision, poor eyesight or colour blindness. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.1.

This will be carried out as part of an accessibility upgrade of the Haiku Content Management System to be completed in Autumn 2022.

  • Some menus, links, buttons, and other controls cannot be operated using the keyboard alone, which can cause problems for people who are blind, have low vision and/or hand tremors. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.1.1.

We are working with our developers (Haiku) to implement fixes for these keyboard operability issues over the coming months.

Disproportionate burden

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

Third-party content

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.

This includes:

  • YouTube videos 
  • Google maps

We will provide an accessible alternative to any third-party content that isn’t compliant.

 

Third party platforms

We often create content which is hosted on third party platforms. This includes:

  • Content we create for social media
  • Video which we host on YouTube
  • Data we supply to national databases

We are responsible for ensuring the content we supply meets accessibility requirements. However, we are not responsible for the accessibility of the platform itself.

 

Video content

This site has pre-recorded video content that was published before 23 September 2020, which is exempt from the accessibility regulations.

 

Archived content

This site contains archived content, which is exempt from the accessibility regulations. The archived content is all internal announcements and external news stories published prior to 23 September 2018, but which have not since been updated.

 

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

We want to provide the best possible experience for all our website visitors. To achieve this, we will:

  • Check all new features in the Haiku Content Management System (CMS), which is used to create this website, for accessibility before they are made available
  • Check all new content for accessibility
  • Train all content editors on accessibility
  • Carry out periodic accessibility checks involving WIN’s accessibility working group, WIN Access
