Accessibility statement for Web.Anglia at Anglia Ruskin University

This website is run by Anglia Ruskin University. We want as many people as possible to be able to use these website pages. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

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

  • the text will not reflow in a single column when you change the size of the browser window.
  • some PDF documents are not fully accessible to screen reader software.
  • some landing pages using tile base navigation have focus highlight issues.

Technical information about this website accessibility

Anglia Ruskin University is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

Compliance status

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

Non accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.

Non compliance with the accessibility regulations

We plan to fix the following issues by 31st December 2020.

1.3.1 Info and Relationships

  • IDs are duplicated on the Staff directory page as the Staff Directory form is duplicated.
  • There are some instances of local link (anchor) occurring where the destination does not exist.

1.4.11: Non-text Contrast

  • Some links and controls do not have the sufficient 3:1 contrast ratio.

1.4.1 Parsing

  • IDs are duplicated on the Staff directory page as the Staff Directory form is duplicated.

1.4.3 Contrast (Minimum)

  • There are some instances of text over images which do not meet the requirements.

2.4.7 Focus Visible

  • Some landing pages have tile based navigation which does not show focus sufficiently.

3.1.1 Language of page

  • Some sections of the website have the incorrect HTML language attribute set for the doc type.

Non-essential PDFs

Some non-essential PDFs created after 23rd September 2018 but before 23rd September 2020 are non-compliant. We plan to ensure these are compliant by 31st December 2020.

Disproportionate Burden

1.4.10 Reflow

  • Content is lost on smaller screen sizes because the site uses a fixed layout and there is no horizontal scroll available.

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

PDFs and other documents

Many of our older PDFs and Word documents do not meet accessibility standards - for example, they may not be structured so they’re accessible to a screen reader.

The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services.

Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish from 23rd September 2020 will meet accessibility standards.

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

All non-compliant issues with this website will be addressed as part of plan to replace the current website with a new platform in 2021. The replacement will aim to resolve all known non-compliance.

Preparation of this accessibility statement

This website was last tested on 29 May 2020. The test was carried out by Anglia Ruskin University based on a sample of most-visited pages and with the assistance of SiteImprove. All flagged priority issues were investigated and, where possible, addressed.

In addition, all content owners review content using the SiteImprove tool.
