Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Leicestershire County Council is committed to making its website 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, due to ‘the non-compliances’ listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
Navigation using a keyboard could be improved:
- it isn’t always clear where you are on the page. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.7 Focus Visible.
- the tabbing order could be improved such as the share icons being lower down the page and some elements took more than 1 tab to get past them. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.3 Focus Order.
Some pages have redundant alternative text. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 Non-text Content.
We are working with our website developer to resolve these issues.
