Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Warrington Borough 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 ‘the non-compliances’ listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
We are aware of some issues and we are working our third party web developers to ensure these are investigated and fixed.
We know of the following issues:
- Container element is empty
- Role not inside the required context
- Page zoom is restricted
- Link without a text alternative
- Image without a text alternative
- Page language has not been identified
We plan to address the issues by the end of December 2021.
Interactive tools and transactions
Some of our interactive forms are difficult to navigate using a keyboard. For example, because some form controls are missing a ‘label’ tag.
Our forms are built and hosted through third party software and ‘skinned’ to look like our website.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
PDFs and other documents
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. For example, we do not plan to fix [example of non-essential document].
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
