Renfrewshire Council 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 2.2 AA standard, due to the non-compliances and exemptions listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Some page elements are not visibly keyboard focusable, so visually impaired users may have trouble navigating throughout the website. This fails WCAG 2.2 success criterion 2.4.7 Focus Visible.
Some ARIA parents' roles are not present, so screen reader users may experience problems navigating using a child control if its managing control lacks the required parent role. This fails WCAG 2.2 success criterion 1.3.1 Info and Relationships.
Some pages have poor colour contrast, so visually impaired users may experience problems accessing the information. This fails WCAG 2.2 success criterion 1.4.3 Contrast (Minimum).
Some heading elements are not consistent, so the markup is not semantically correct. This fails WCAG 2.2 success criterion 1.3.1 Info and Relationships.
Some tables do not have associated row headers, so screen reader users will not be able to fully understand the information contained in the table. This fails WCAG 2.2 success criterion 1.3.1 Info and Relationships.
Some input elements do not have associated labels, so screen reader users may experience problems completing the forms. This fails WCAG 2.2 success criterion 3.3.2 Labels or Instructions.
Some error messages are not fully accessible to screen reader software, so they may miss the error messages. This fails WCAG 2.2 success criterion 3.3.1 Error Identification.
Some warning messages do not provide appropriate suggestions for correction of an input error, so persons with cognitive limitations may find it difficult to understand how to correct the errors. This fails WCAG 2.2 success criterion 3.3.3 Error Suggestion.
Some of our PDFs and other documents are essential for providing and using our services on MyAccount. For example, we send an invoice or a statement to a case submitted by a user.
However, we are aware that we have a few inaccessible PDFs and Word documents. We are implementing a new process to ensure that we can:
We do not audit these for accessibility as we do not provide maps for navigational purposes, and therefore these maps are exempt from the accessibility regulations.
We're working with our supplier to fix the issues that cannot be fixed by us.
