Our accessibility roadmap shows how we plan to improve accessibility on

Some of the issues that we are currently working on:

This work will be undertaken over the next 12 months


Resolution and target date

Inaccessible 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 December 2023, we plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.

Some images do not have alternative text explanations

Internal testing is now taking place

Some elements did not have sufficient colour contrast

Internal accessibility testing of the website

Internal testing is now taking place.
Regular use of suitable software has been implemented and issues identified will be addressed as required.

Background and foreground colors do not have a sufficient contrast ratio

Specific to the Google Maps page.
Make sure all text on the page meets the minimum color contrast ratios specified by WCAG:
3:1 for text that is 18 pt, or 14 pt and bold
4.5:1 for all other text
December 2023

Heading elements are not in a sequentially-descending order

Provide unique and descriptive title attributes for all frame and iframe elements.
December 2023

<html> element does not have a [lang] attribute

To ensure our page's content is pronounced correctly for screen reader users, we will endeavour to use a valid language code in the lang attribute of the element.

Links do not have a discernible name

Links must have a unique name or short description attached to them in the code to enable screen readers to read out loud.
This will be an ongoing task.
