TECHNICAL INFORMATION ABOUT THIS WEBSITE'S ACCESSIBILITY
Notts ALC 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
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.

NON-COMPLIANCE WITH THE ACCESSIBILITY REGULATIONS
* Not all text elements have sufficient colour contrast between the text in the foreground and the background colour
* There are unrecognized ARIA attributes and incorrectly applied for ARIA roles in places
* Some images do not have a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information
* Some documents are not fully compliant with accessibility regulations. In particular, the headings are not always formatted in a way to be compatible with e-reader software
* The logo has an embedded link which is not necessary or useful

CONTENT THAT IS NOT WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THE ACCESSIBILITY REGULATIONS
Documents:
The accessibility regulations do not apply to documents published before 23 September 2018 if they are not essential to providing services. 

WHAT Notts ALC IS DOING TO IMPROVE ACCESSIBILITY
Notts ALC moved to a new website in 2020 in an attempt to be fully compliant with accessibility requirements. Many of the issues identified are in aspects of the site controlled by the website provider so Notts ALC is working with the website provider to identify issues and them corrected. It is therefore impossible to give a timescale for compliance for these elements.
Any new or updated PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
