How accessible this website is

We know some parts of this website aren’t fully accessible:

  • The cookie preferences panels have two features that may present minor difficulties for some users of assistive technology.
  • On first visiting the site the cookie message banner will appear. The browser focus will go to this banner and the keyboard navigation will be kept inside the banner’s controls. This is important so that the cookie choices are prominent to those using assistive technology.
  • A checkbox element within the Cookie Preferences tool has no label There is no minimal impact to users of assistive tech. This is part of a 3rd party integration that can only be fixed by the vendor.

Disproportionate burden

Empty button in cookie preferences dialog

The cookie preferences dialog contains a button used to expand a text area and which has no text in it.

This area is open by default and is not expected to cause users of assistive technology difficulty when using the cookie preferences.

This entire feature is provided by a third party service which cannot be altered. The service is under constant revision and the vendors apply accessibility fixes as part of their maintenence routine.

We will assess the accessibility of this feature again at the next accessibility review of this site.
