Accessibility statement for the University of 雅虎体育直播_中国竞彩网-中文app官网 website

This accessibility statement applies to southampton.ac.uk, run by the University of 雅虎体育直播_中国竞彩网-中文app官网.

We want as many users as possible to be able to use this website. For example, users should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • zoom in up to 300% without text being hidden from view
  • 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)

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

Accessibility of the website

We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible, as:

  • you cannot change the line height or spacing of text
  • many of our PDF documents are not fully accessible to screen reader software
  • live video streams and older videos do not always have captions
  • the target of some hyperlinks is not always clear
  • the colour contrast ratio between text and background is too low in some places
  • some tables are not correctly marked up with headers, captions or summaries
  • it is hard to interact fully with some of our maps
  • the search feature is not navigable or actionable using keyboard tabbing
  • the cookie policy is not navigable or actionable using keyboard tabbing
  • it is not possible to navigate away from the cookie policy using a keyboard

Enforcement procedure

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

Technical information about this website's accessibility

The University of 雅虎体育直播_中国竞彩网-中文app官网 is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

Compliance status

This website is not compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard. The non-compliances and exemptions' are listed below.

Non-accessible content

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

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

The following issues and areas of content are not compliant with WCAG 2.1 AA standard.

  • Cookie policy is not navigable or actionable using keyboard tabbing
  • Cookie policy prevents keyboard users navigating page content
  • Search feature is not navigable or actionable using keyboard tabbing
  • Text not included in an accessible rich internet applications (ARIA) landmark
  • Colour contrast is not sufficient
  • Headings are not structured
  • Line height is below minimum value
  • Text is clipped when resized
  • Page zoom is restricted
  • Font size is fixed
  • Overuse of italics
  • Link without a text alternative
  • Container element is empty
  • Element IDs are not unique
  • Scrollable element is not keyboard accessible
  • Inline frames without a text alternative
  • Empty headings
  • Links are not clearly identifiable
  • Invalid state or property

Images with poor or missing descriptions

While decorative images do not feature text alternatives, some other images have poor or missing text alternatives. This means that people using assistive technology may not be able to access the information conveyed by these images.

This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content).

We plan to add correct text alternatives for images as we review and amend each page.

Links without meaningful purpose

Some of our pages include hyperlinks with an unclear purpose or target. These links do not make sense when taken out of context. Some pages have several links to the same location.

This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.4 (Link Purpose (In Context))

We plan to correct link text as we review and amend each page.

Incorrect use of headings

Some of our pages feature skipped, missed or incorrect heading levels. On some pages, heading styles have been used for visual emphasis, rather than for document structure. This means that people using assistive technology cannot always accurately navigate or understand the structure of these pages.

This fails WCAG 2.1 success criteria 1.3.1 (Info and Relationships), 2.4.6 (Headings and Labels) and 2.4.10 (Section Headings).

We plan to correct heading structures as we review and amend each page.

Poor contrast ratios

In places, the contrast ratio between text and background is not high enough. This means that some people may find it hard to read some text.

This fails WCAG 2.1 success criteria 1.4.3 (Contrast (Minimum)).

We plan to review and improve contrast ratios as we transform the University’s web estate.

Issues with tables

Some pages contain content presented in tables. These do not always have the correct header, scope, caption or summary markup. This means that some people using assistive technology may struggle to accurately understand the information presented in these tables.

This fails WCAG 2.1 success criteria 1.3.1 (Info and Relationships).

We plan to review and improve the accessibility of our tables as we review each page. We will also assess whether there are more accessible ways to present this information.

Keyboard

Some content on our pages, including the search feature, is not accessible using a keyboard. This means that people using a keyboard may not be able to search our content.

This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.1.1 (Keyboard). We’ll fix this as part of the continuing transition to our new website this year.

‘Focus visible’ navigation

A border is not always visible around tabbed content. Where it is, the contrast might not be clear enough. This means that people using a keyboard may not be able to navigate our content easily.

This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.7 (Focus Visible). We’ll fix this as part of the continuing transition to our new website this year.

‘No-keyboard’ trap

It is not possible to use the tab key to navigate our cookie policy. This means that people using a keyboard cannot navigate onto page content.

This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.1.2 (No Keyboard Trap). This is our highest priority to resolve. We’re working on fixing the issue before the end of the month.

Disproportionate burden

There are currently no issues on southampton.ac.uk that we consider to be a disproportionate burden to fix.

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

The following content is not within the scope of these regulations, so it may be inaccessible.

Older PDFs and documents

The regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services.

Interactive maps

The regulations do not require interactive maps to be accessible, providing an accessible alternative is provided.

Live video streams

The regulations do not require that live video streams have captions, but we will strive to provide these where possible.

Third-party content

We use third-party services and content across our website. This includes things like forms, timetables, calendars, social media feeds and more. We often do not have control over the accessibility of these types of content.

But we’re working with vendors and reviewing our procurement processes to make sure as many people as possible can use these services.

We ask third-party suppliers to provide links to their Accessibility Conformance Report (ACR). They can do this using the Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT). The template supports Section 508, EN 301 549 (PDF), and W3C/WAI WCAG.

We support the searchBOX project, which provides a database of accessibility information about third-party vendors across the public sector. You can search for third-party accessibility statements using the free searchBOX finder tool.

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

The University has been carrying out a multi-year digital transformation which began with a project called OneWeb. The work aims to transform our digital estate with a focus on creating inclusive platforms, products and services.

As a result we're preparing to transition to a new website later this year.

Preparation of this accessibility statement

This statement was prepared on 29 October 2020. It was last reviewed on 18 May 2022.

This website was last tested on 28 September 2020.

We will continue to test our site regularly, and will prioritise the areas with the highest impact for the most users. We welcome your feedback and encourage you to get in contact to help us target our priorities.
