Technical information about this website’s accessibility

West Midlands Research Training Collaborative  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-compliances and exemptions listed below.

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons:

Issues with PDFs and other documents

  • most older PDF, documents are not fully accessible to screen reader software Our site favours the HTML format for documents.

  • PDFs are not able to comply with the requirements of the web accessibility standard, and we do not generally upload new PDFs. Where we do create new PDFs, we use the PDF/UA standard which is more accessible.

  • infographics and some image links may not have captions. We have attempted to include alt text, where applicable.

Issues with videos

  • some of our older videos may not have captions , any videos and transcripts are the responsibility of the owner

 

Issues with text

  • Some links may not have captions or alt text and/or may be considered "empty links" for other reasons. This may interfere with the overall functionality of the site, we do not intend to resolve these as it is a disproportionate burden.

  • Some links on the site are not currently formatted in a compliant manner and we aim to fix these as soon as possible.

  • Some structural or ARIA requirements are not possible to correct due to limitations with the platform.

Disproportionate burden:

We have assessed the time, cost and resources involved in fixing the aforementioned accessibility issues with this site. We believe doing so would be a Disproportionate Burden within the The Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (Regulation 7). This position may change in the future if circumstances change and we will make another assessment at such a time.
