Technical Accessibility Statement

Technical Information about this website’s accessibility

Aberystwyth University is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

Compliance status

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances and exemptions listed below.

Non-accessible content

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

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Documents are only available in PDF format. This can mean that people cannot enlarge text in the documents without needing to scroll left to right to read it. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.10 Reflow.

Documents do not have alternative text on all images. This means that the information in them isn’t available to people using assistive technology. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 Non-Text Content.    

These issues are due to the nature of the site which was being used as an alternative to a physical display of paper posters for an event in 2021. The site only remains as an archive from the event, so we do not plan to update it at this point.
