3. Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Todmorden Health Centre 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 listed below.
Non accessible content
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
- where it fails the success criteria
- planned dates for when issues will be fixed
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
> Heading tag found with no content. Text that is not intended as a heading should not be marked up with heading tags.
> Anchor element found with a valid href attribute, but no link content has been supplied.
> Ensure the functionality provided by mousing over this element is available through the keyboard; for instance, using the focus event.
> Ensure the functionality provided by an event handler for this element is available through the keyboard
> If this element contains a navigation section, it is recommended that it be marked up as a list.
> The heading structure is not logically nested. This h2 element appears to be the primary document heading, so should be an h1 element.
> Heading markup should be used if this content is intended as a heading.
> Ensure the functionality provided by mousing out of this element is available through the keyboard; for instance, using the blur event.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
PDFs and other documents
Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs with information on how users can access our services, and forms published as Word documents. By the end of March 2021 we plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.
The accessibility 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.
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
4. What we’re doing to improve accessibility
Accessibility issues will be reviewed and resolved over the next 6 months.
Testing will be carried out a regular interval to ensue ongoing compliance.
5. Preparation of this accessibility statement
