Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Leicestershire County Council is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to [insert one of the following: ‘the non-compliances’, ‘the exemptions’ or ‘the non-compliances and exemptions’] listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
- Some links don’t have a unique name this might make it more difficult for people using a screen reader. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 Name, Role, Value.
- Some elements don’t have sufficient colour contrast which can make them difficult to read for users with low vision, for example some web links. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.3 Contrast (Minimum).
- Some iframe and form elements don’t have a title or label. This might make it difficult for people using assistive technologies to navigate the website. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 (Name, role, value).
- Some images don’t have alternative text, so people using a screen reader might not be able to access the information. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content).
We are working with our developer to resolve these issues.
