Accessibility Statement

  • Zoom in over 200% without the text spilling off the screen

We’ve also made the website text as easy as possible to understand.

Technical information about the accessibility of the Inspiring Skills Excellence in Wales websites

Inspiring Skills Excellence in Wales is committed to making its websites 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:

Videos – Audio Description (Pre-recorded)

Not all videos requiring it, currently contain audio description or transcription. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.2.5 (Audio Description (pre-recorded)). We are working towards ensuring that all new video content meet accessibility requirements.

Events calendar

Our Events page provides an outline of planned activities by the Inspiring Skills Excellence in Wales project. The calendar uses third-party software and has not formally been accessibility tested. We therefore cannot be responsible for any areas on this site that may not be fully accessible.

How we tested this website

The Inspiring Skills Excellence in Wales website was last tested in September 2020 . The site was tested through using a combination of online tools (wave.webaim.org), software (NVDA as a screen reader), and manual checks by our developers Ridgeon Network.

What we are doing to improve accessibility

We continue to work with our developers to ensure we strive towards achieving full compliance to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standards.

We are building in new guidelines for PDFs and videos to ensure that future videos, PDFs and other documents will be fully compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1.
