Accessibility statement for The PEACE Programmes Learning Platform

 

This accessibility statement applies to The PEACE Programmes Learning Platform website: https://peaceplatform.seupb.eu/

This website is run by The SEUPB (Special EU Programmes Body). We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

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

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

 

SEUPB 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 listed below

 

Non-accessible content

 

Some pages and content is non-accessible for the following reasons. These include but is not limited to the following:

  • Some pages scroll in two dimensions on small screens (WCAG AA 1.4.10)
  • Some of our pre-recorded audio and video do not have captions (WCAG A 1.2.2)
  • Some of our link text is the same for different destinations, to support various screen sizes (WCAG A 2.4.4)
  • There are instances where interface elements in the footer do not have a visible focus indicator. (WCAG 2.1, Level AA, 2.4.7)
  • Some pages have section headings which are not clearly identified using HTML but <strong> tags. This is a failure of WCAG 2.1, Level A, 1.3.1

We will endeavour to repair the above and any other identified issues within the next 12 months, by October 2022.

 
Disproportionate burden
 
Interactive tools

Some of our more interactive pages may be difficult to navigate using a keyboard. For example, the project query page and the range sliders used for project dates and budgets.

 
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. 

Any new PDFs we publish will meet accessibility standards.

 

Media Recordings

We do not plan to add captions to historical media recordings as they do not fall within accessibility regulations.

 

Online maps and mapping services

Online maps and mapping services are exempt from the regulations. However, an accessible alternative must be provided for essential information provided for navigational use. We do not use mapping for navigational purposes.
