TECHNICAL INFORMATION ABOUT THIS WEBSITE’S ACCESSIBILITY
Dundee and Angus College 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 fully compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
PDFs and other documents
We will endeavour to ensure that any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
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.
We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
WHAT WE’RE DOING TO IMPROVE ACCESSIBILITY
- We have formed a Public Sector Website Accessibility Regulations Group to define and execute a strategic approach to accessibility across our websites
- Content editors are being trained to ensure new content is accessible and have access to our training materials and guidance
- An annual online audit and testing process, based on the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA has been developed and implemented. This uses our seven-stage testing approach.
- We are committed to continually addressing any errors as we identify them in a timely manner
THIRD PARTY CONTENT
- Our website contains third-party content. We do not have control over and are not responsible for the accessibility of this content, but we make best endeavours to work with the third-party to improve its accessibility. This may include:
- Links to non-Dundee and Angus College websites
- Content/functionality on our website
- Content hosted on other websites, such as social media sites.
- To help accessibility compliance across the sector, Dundee and Angus College supports searchBOX, a centralised, independent directory of third-party accessibility information.
- SearchBOX catalogues the contact information and accessibility statements of third-party suppliers, enables the sharing of community-generated accessibility statements, and allows users to map their supplier ecosystem.
- Users can access third-party accessibility statements using the free searchBOX Finder service.
- Dundee and Angus College encourages all our partners and suppliers to support this effort by ensuring that their accessibility information is included in the searchBOX director
