Accessibility

This accessibility statement applies to www.civicuk.com, a website run by CIVIC Computing Ltd. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website, so you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts,
  • zoom up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen,
  • navigate to most of the website with a keyboard,
  • navigate to most of the website using speech recognition software, and
  • 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.

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

How accessible is our website?

We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible:

  • The Reduce transparency setting should remove the floating shapes that overlay the page, but it is not currently being honoured. Viewing on mobile or at a smaller screen size will mitigate this issue.
  • The menu close button does not appear in the expected place in the focus order, but can still be closed using the escape key.

We plan to address these issues by the end of March 2021. When we publish new content, we’ll make sure this accessibility statement is also updated.

Content that’s not within the scope of accessibility regulations

We don’t plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from accessibility regulations.

How to report accessibility problems

CIVIC is committed to making our website fully compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA standard, but issues and bugs may arise.

If you find any problems not listed on this page, think we’re not meeting accessibility requirements or require information in a different format, please get in touch.
