Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Leicestershire County 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.
Non accessible content
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non compliance with the accessibility regulations
- The close banner icon/link are not obvious and have no names or generic names, so the experience for people using screen readers and other assistive technologies might not be as good as it should be. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 Name, Role, Value.
- Some contact form elements do not have associated labels attached, this may cause difficulties for people using screen readers and other assistive technologies. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 Name, Role, Value.
- Some elements do not have sufficient colour contrast. For example the ‘book’ buttons and the banner text on the Home page. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.3 Contrast (Minimum).
- Some embedded content doesn’t have a coded role, for example the Facebook feed, so screen readers might not read it correctly. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 Name, Role, Value.
- Some image elements do not have alternate text attached. For example the ‘map pin’ on the Find Us page. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 Non-text Content.
We are working with our developer to correct these issues.
