Non accessible content

Non compliance with the accessibility regulations

- The information on the Computer Misuse Act within the Cyber Choices section does not work as well as it should with keyboard controls
- The Cyber Champions Lesson Plan does not currently have subtitles on the video game. These have been generated and are in the process of being aligned to the recorded segments

- PDFs may not be suitable for users of assistive technology. We are in the process of replacing or fixing any PDF and Word documents which are essential to our services, however users can request accessible versions.
- Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
Path to Improvement
We are investigating fixing the issues and timelines to achieve these.
How we tested this website
This website was last tested using:
- automated testing – the quickest way to catch 20% to 50% of potential issues
- manual testing – using assistive technology tools to test the website with a social focus on areas with known problems
- user testing – asking users with accessibility needs to test the website, and learning from their feedback
We continually monitor and test the accessibility of our site and have made fixing and improving the accessibility of the site part of our daily work.
