Technical information about this website’s accessibility

AmplifyChange 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.

 

Non accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.

Noncompliance with the accessibility regulations

  • Some images do not have equivalent text alternatives. WCAG 2.1 reference: 1.1.1 (Provide alternative text that serves an equivalent purpose).
  • Some embedded videos on the site have incorrect captions. WCAG 2.1 reference: 1.2.1 (Either an alternative for time-based media or an audio track is provided that presents equivalent information for prerecorded video-only content).
  • Some videos do not provide accompanying text transcripts where detail is not included in video captions. WCAG 2.1 reference 1.2.5 (Ensure that all actions, scene changes, and on-screen text that are important is included in a transcript).

 

When we plan to fix these problems

We plan to fix the above issues by December 2024. When we publish new content, we’ll make sure the contents referred to above meets accessibility standards.

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

PDFs and other documents

  • Some of our older PDFs and Word documents do not meet accessibility standards – for example, they may not be structured so they’re accessible to a screen reader. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 (name, role value).
  • Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have application preparation documents published as Word documents. By December 2024, we plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.
  • The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services. For example, we do not plan to fix ‘AmplifyChange’s work on addressing child, early and forced marriage (CEFM)’.
  • Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
