Technical information about this website’s accessibility
HILLTOP SPINNING AND WEAVING CENTRE 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.
The content that is not accessible is outlined below with details of:
- where it fails the success criteria
- planned dates for when issues will be fixed
Some non-English pages have attachments in more than one language, and the language for the attachments is not identified, nor indicated within the files. This fails WCAG 2.1A 3.1.1 success criterion (Language of Page). We plan to fix this by September 2020.
A small number of pages have content in different languages where the language is not identified. This fails WCAG 2.1A 3.1.1 success criterion (Language of Page). We plan to fix this by October 2002.
Focused links and buttons sometimes do not have enough contrast. This fails WCAG 1.4.11 AA (Non-text Contrast). We plan to fix this by October 2020.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
The following content does not need to comply with the accessibility requirement until September 2020, because it was published before September 2018.
Some other pages have content in different languages where the language is not identified. This fails WCAG 2.1 A 3.1.1 success criterion (Language of Page). We plan to identify and fix these by September 2020.
PDFs and other documents
Many documents are not accessible in a number of ways including missing text alternatives and missing document structure.
View the accessible document policy of the organisation that published the document to report any problems or request documents in an alternative format.
