Technical information about this website’s accessibility
East Surrey 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 partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.
- WCAG 1.4.5 Images of Text
- WCAG 1.1.1 Non-text content
- WCAG 2.4.2 Page titled
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
WCAG 1.4.5 Images of Text
Some images feature text within them. Images of text cause problems for users who need to adjust how visual content like font size, spacing or colours are displayed. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.5 (images of text). We plan to remove text with images by April 2023.
WCAG 1.1.1 Non-text content
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 April 2023. When we publish new content we’ll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.
WCAG 2.4.2 Page titled
PDF documents do not currently have titles that describe the topic or purpose of the page. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.2 (page titled).
We plan to add titles to all PDF documents by April 2023. When we publish new content we’ll make sure our PDF meets accessibility standards.
