Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Cyngor Cymuned Aberffraw 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 issues with text contrast on some pages, no alternative text for some notices shown as JPG and PDFs used to display minutes as listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
Some images do not have a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content). We plan to add text alternatives for all images by December 2021. When we publish new content, we will make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.
Some PDF links open in a new page. People using a screen reader may not notice the new tab opening. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content). A warning will be placed on the minute’s page by December 2021 to explain this behaviour.
Some notices on the web site have been posted as JPG images. This makes it difficult for people using a screen reader to access the information. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.9 (images of text). The existing images will be reviewed and removed if the notice is no longer required. We plan to added informational text to all JPG notices from now on.
The title of some PDFs may be difficult to read. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content). These will be reviewed by December 2021 and we will ensure that future titles are clear.
Navigation and accessing information
- There’s no way to skip the repeated content in the page header (for example, a ‘skip to main content’ option).
- It’s not always possible to change the device orientation from horizontal to vertical without making it more difficult to view the content.
- It’s not possible for users to change text size without some of the content overlapping.
Interactive tools and transactions
We have assessed the cost of fixing the issues with navigation and accessing information, and with interactive tools and transactions. We believe that doing so now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations. We will make another assessment when the supplier contract is up for renewal, likely to be in 2023.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
PDFs and other documents
Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs with information about Agenda and minutes. The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they are not essential to providing our services. For example, we do not plan to fix minutes published as PDF before this date.
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
What we’re doing to improve accessibility
We will improve the way that minutes and agenda are published on our web site so people using a screen reader can access the information
