  • 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)

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.

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 images and video

Images

  • Some images do not have a meaningful text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1. 

By September 2021, all images will have meaningful text alternative. Purely decorative images will have blank alt text and infographics and charts will have a link to a full description of the content.

  • Some images include text as part of the image, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.5. 

By September 2021, all images containing text will have a suitable text alternative to include the image text.

 

Video

  • Video content does not have a transcript, making the content inaccessible to users who cannot see. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.2.1.

All video content will have a transcript by September 2021.

  • Video content does not include captions making them inaccessible to people who cannot hear. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.2.2.

All video content will have captions by September 2021.

  • Video content does not include a text description of important visual information making this inaccessible to people who can’t see. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.2.5.

All video content will have text description of important visuals by September 2021.

 

Issue with hyperlinks, navigation, structure, and keyboard operability

Hyperlinks

  • 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.

All hyperlinks will have a standard 3:1 contract ratio by September 2021.

 

Navigation

  • Not all page have been listed on content lists, which can result in people with cognitive disabilities being unable to quickly orientate themselves within the site. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.2.

All pages will be listed on content lists September 2021.

 

Structure

  • Not all headings or text have been formatted correctly and overlap with alternative text formatting, making the site more difficult for users of assistive technology such as screen readers to access. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1.

Correct all headings by September 2021. 

  • Heading have on occasion been used to highlight information rather than for headings, making the site more difficult for users of assistive technology to use. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criteria 1.3.1 and 2.4.6.

Remove alternative text formatting on text and headings by September 2021.

 

Keyboard operability

  • 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.

 

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 done as part of an accessibility upgrade of the Haiku Content Management System to be completed in Autumn 2020.

 

Disproportionate burden

We do not consider any of the accessibility issues to be a disproportionate burden and aim to make the site fully compliant by September 2021.

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 23rd 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 23rd 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:

  • Fix known issues
  • 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 forum, WIN Access
