We are committed to providing a website that is as accessible as possible to all of our users. If you have any questions or suggestions regarding the accessibility of this site, please contact us.
We take our obligations under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 seriously. To this end, we have adopted the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 as the benchmark for our website. We aim to achieve WCAG 2.0 - AA compliance across the site.
We try to do this by:
This website has several features that improve accessibility, including:
The 'skip to content' link is located at the top of each web page. Whether you are using a screen reader, mobile phone or PDA, or cannot easily use a mouse, the 'skip to content' link allows you to quickly bypass global navigation elements.
Each page has text resizing options to enlarge or decrease the size of the text to improve readability according to individual needs.
The template design and stylesheets used throughout this site have been developed according to WCAG 2.0 AA requirements. This has resulted in marked improvement in the areas of page layout, colour contrast, and coding.
Creating and maintaining an accessible website is a process of continuous improvement. There are still parts of our web presence that may present access problems for some people. These include:
Our LMS (Moodle) has not yet been tested and adapted to accommodate accessibility principles.
There is a range of content presented in our old web templates that has not been redeveloped to incorporate new accessibility features.
This statement of web accessibility refers to content hosted on the corporate web server. There is web content (especially databases and applications) hosted externally to the corporate server which is yet to be tested and adapted to accommodate accessibility principles.
Please contact us if you have questions about or difficulty accessing any of these areas.
The role of the Disability Liaison Unit is to support the development of learning and working environments that enable full participation in University life by students and staff with a disability.
