Compliance status

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines
version 2.1 AA standard, due to visual content and reduced audio.
We will meet WCAG 2.1 AA standard in full by September 23 2020.

Accessibility problems

We are adding text alternatives for all images and will have completed this by the end of September 2020. When we publish new content we’ll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.

Text to audio function is not available on all pages.

Disproportionate burden

It’s not possible for users to change text size without some of the content overlapping.

We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
