Accessibility Statement

This accessibility statement applies to the https://www.hull-college.ac.uk/ website.

 

This website is run by Hull College, and we want as many people as possible to be able to use it. For example, this means you should be able to:

  • Change colours, contrast levels, and fonts.
  • Zoom in up to 400% without the text spilling off the screen and without content being truncated or overlapping.
  • 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 mostrecent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver).

 

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand for all users.

 

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

Compliance status

 This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.

 

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

   

At 200% zoom the keyboard focus is not visible on the hamburger menu (this fails WCAG 2.4.7 Focus Visible)

We are working to resolve the above issues by the end of July 2023 and are continuing to offer support for users with additional access needs and you can request this support by emailinginfo@hull-college.ac.uk

Downloadable PDF Files

There are some technical accessibility issues which may impact user experience. Accessibility auditing and testing revealed an issue with tables within some PDF documents being incorrectly marked up or tagged.

It is not possible at this time to retrospectively address this issue due to the volume of downloadable documents on the site. Should you require an additional format /tagging within any document, this can be requested by emailing info@hull-college.ac.uk

 

We are continuing to offer support for users with additional access needs and you can request this support by emailing info@hull-college.ac.uk

Disproportionate Burden Claim

We believe that our approach to carrying out accessibility checks is reasonable.

However, the accessibility regulations say that we don't need to make all elements on a website accessible, if doing so would impose a disproportionate burden on us.

We've assessed that it'd be a disproportionate burden to fix all legacy accessibility issues and with PDF documents published on this website and will be submitting a Disproportionate Burden Claim.

What we're doing to improve accessibility

We're working towards WCAG 2.1 AA certification but also planning the launch of a new fully compliant website in 2024. On-going accessibility testing during and beyond 2023 in a programme of continual assessment on both the current and planned websites.

 

Preparation of this accessibility statement
