Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Stornaway Productions Ltd. 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’ listed below.

Non-accessible content

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Currently, project video streams do not have caption options. This fails WCAG 2.0 success criterion 1.2.2 Captions (Captions).

We plan to add this option in a future release of our platform. Expected within the next 24 months.

Some images do not have a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content).

We plan to add text alternatives for all images by January 2023. When we publish new content we’ll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.

You cannot skip to the main content when using a screen reader. This fails WCAG success criterion 2.4.1 ( Bypass Blocks).

We will be ensuring that this is enabled by January 2023. 

 

Disproportionate burden

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

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

We are working to ensure that all accessibility issues are fixed. We will update this page when issues are fixed.

These include:

  • Ensuring all images have text alternatives
  • Enabling the ability to skip to main content
  • An updated release of the platform will allow for optional captions on all videos
