  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Wilton Park 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

Non-accessibile content

N/A

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Some of the content provided in PDF documents are not fully accessible

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

We understand that the regulations do not require us to fix PDFs, other documents or assets published before 23 September 2018, if they’re not essential to service delivery.

Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to delivering our work. For example, our report section mostly contains HTML and PDF reports. However, some of the PDF reports do not have the right formatting such as table of content to enable keyboard and assistive technology users to understand the content.

By the end of December 2021, we plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.

Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.

Live video

We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

The guidelines have 3 levels of accessibility (A, AA and AAA). We’ve chosen Level AA as the target for the Wilton Park website.

We monitor the website regularly to maintain this, but if you do find any problems, please get in touch via our contact form page.

How we tested

Testing has been conducted by the website hosting and maintenance team (www.dxw.com).
