How accessible is this website

We have built this website to be accessible with common assistive technologies and different ways of using websites.

 This means:

  • You can move around and use most of the website without a mouse, by using a keyboard or assistive technology such as speech recognition or a screen reader
  • You can increase the font size or zoom in on content
  • You can change the colours or the fonts

We have also used plain English principles to make our content clear and easy to understand.

Compliance status

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.

Non accessible content

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

  • There is no visible keyboard tab focus on the logo in the header ( WCAG 2.4.7Focus Visible) across all our website pages.
  • Horizontal scrolling is required when the page is zoomed in at 400% or viewed in mobile view (WCAG 1.4.10 Reflow)
  • When the page is zoomed in at 400% or viewed in mobile view, the text spills off the page. When the user scrolls the extra page border is black. The black background fails with the text (WCAG 1.4.3 Constrast(Minimum))
  • On our CEOP-reporting page A ‘Not ready to make a report yet?’ notice pops up when tabbing past ‘under 18 years old’ or if focus leaves the page. This is an unexpected change of context (WCAG 3,2.1 On Focus)
  • Our ‘what is online child sexual abuse and exploitation’ page Is missing a title element (WCAG 2.4.2 Page Titled)

What we are doing to improve accessibility

 This website will be regularly reviewed with manual audits and by scans with an automated testing tool by our website provider.

 We are working to correct any non-compliances as soon as possible.

Technical information

This statement was prepared on 30 September 2022.

This website was last tested on 21.02.2020. The test was carried out by Netcel.

The level of accessibility was tested by running automated and manual tests that determined where areas of the site may be difficult for users with a wide variety of accessibility needs may have trouble accessing content.

We did manual and automatic report generation testing to determine where the sites didn’t comply with the desired accessibility level according to WCAG 2.1 AA standards.

For automated reporting we used :

  • Lighthouse in Google Chrome
  • WAVE chrome plugin

For manual testing we used

  • Chrome web developer tools
  • NVDA Screen reader (desktop screen reader)
  • Talkback for Android (mobile screen reader)
  • WCAG contrast checker.

 We tested inputs for :

  • Mouse (desktop)
  • Keyboard (desktop)
  • Touch (mobile and desktop)
  • Swipe (mobile screen readers)
