Technical information about this website's accessibility
Mydex CIC is committed to making this website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
We have established a roadmap for ensuring all our websites meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard. This includes auditing of our existing content, making the necessary changes, and developing a design system that guides the creation of content accessible to all.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
- Some tables in content do not have table row headers when needed. This means assistive technologies will not read the tables correctly. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1 (Info and Relationships).
- Images on some pages do not always have suitable image descriptions. Users of assistive technologies may not have access to information conveyed in images. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (Non-text Content).
- Some pages have duplicate titles. This may make it difficult for users to orient themselves and find the right content. This fails WCAG 2.4.2 success criterion (Page Titled).
- Some underlined text looks like links. This means it is difficult for some users to complete an onward journey. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1 (Info and Relationships).
- Some pages have inconsistently-placed language navigation. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 3.2.4 success criterion (Consistent Identification).
- Some content looks like headings but is not. This makes it difficult for screen reader users to navigate the page. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1 (Info and Relationships).
- Some pages have poor colour contrast. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.1 (Use of Colour).
How we are tested this website
We use the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines V2.1 level A and level AA to test how accessible all pages across our websites are. We use industry leading testing tool kits to audit our websites and inform our changes.
What we’re doing to improve accessibility
We are currently fixing content which fails to meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard. We are also developing and updating all Mydex websites and our design system to improve compliance across our domains. We will update our statements when issues are fixed.
