How you might find it hard to access our website

Find out about parts of our site you might find hard to access. We're fixing urgent issues as a priority. We've listed those first, followed by the 'important' issues.

使用导航菜单

如果您使用屏幕阅读器, you may not be able to search the site from the main menu. Nor are you told about the icon to access the menu on a mobile device or zoomed in 200% or more. These issues are urgent for us to fix.

If you use a tab key 和 zoom in 200% or more, it may not be clear which menu item you can select. 这是bv1946官网急需解决的问题.

On study facility pages like 'wind tunnels', the '更多的 information' link may not be visible when you zoom in 200% or more. 这是bv1946官网急需解决的问题.

如果您使用屏幕阅读器, you are not told that some options in the main menu such as '本科学习' 和 '查看所有课程' are headings. Nor are you told what options sit underneath some of these headings. This makes it harder for you to underst和 how the website is organised 和 to get around the site. These issues are important to fix.

访问bv1946官网的学习页面

如果您使用屏幕阅读器 to search our subjects, you may not be told how many subjects relate to your search. You also will be told to use the form to 'filter courses', when this is, in fact, a subject search. These issues are urgent for us to fix.

If you use our course finder with a screen reader, you may have difficulty choosing  options such as 'Postgraduate'. If you zoom in, the course finder is hard to view. 这些都是bv1946官网急需解决的问题.

如果您使用屏幕阅读器, you are not told about the links for undergraduate, postgraduate 和 PhD options in the 研究 section. 这是bv1946官网急需解决的问题.

If you use the tab key or a screen reader, you may have difficulties in navigating through 和 selecting 'Facilities' on subject pages such as 'aeronautical 和 astronautical engineering'. 这是急需解决的问题.

如果您使用屏幕阅读器, you are not told about the 'previous' 和 'next' arrows on the study facilities boxes, like on the page about the wind tunnel, 例如. 这是急需解决的问题.

如果您使用屏幕阅读器, 你可能会找到视频, like on the page about wind tunnels, 例如, which you cannot acccess because they do not have an audio description or text transcript. 这是急需解决的问题.

访问bv1946官网的研究页面

If you use our 'Find a person' search with a screen reader, you are told about a decorative ORCID element that you cannot interact with. 这个问题急需解决.

If you use assistive technology to access the 'research institutes, 中心和团体的搜索, 你没有被告知:

  • 搜索按钮
  • 搜索框
  • the research area dropdown menu

这个问题急需解决.

如果您使用屏幕阅读器 to search 研究领域, you are incorrectly told to 'filter courses by name or bv1946官网 code', 而不是研究领域. 这是急需解决的问题.

If you use a tab key to access academics' details on '研究 area' pages like 'Archaeology', you will not be able to use the 'People' boxes 'previous' or 'next' arrows. 这是急需解决的问题.

If you use the tab key to search for 研究 by 'projects,“机构和团体”, you do not have access to all the options. And, if you are a screen reader, you are not told the search options 和 what is selected. 这个问题急需解决.

Accessing news, events 和 business pages

If you visit some pages we are working on, 喜欢新闻, 事件或业务, 你可能在以下方面有问题:

  • reading where the colour contrast between text 和 background is too low
  • reading because you cannot change the line height or text spacing

  • accessing PDF documents using screen reader software
  • getting the information in some videos without captions
  • 用bv1946官网的桌子

不成比例的负担

There are currently no issues on folks-eniwa.com that we consider to be a disproportionate burden to fix.

Content that's not within the scope of accessibility regulations

Some content types are outside the scope of the regulations. We aren’t required to fix these, including:

  • older documents like PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to our services
  • interaction maps, as long as an accessible alternative is given
  • live video streams with captions

第三方内容

We often do not have control over the accessibility of third-party services 和 content across our website. 这包括如下内容:

  • 形式
  • 时间表
  • 日历
  • 社交媒体源

But we’re working with vendors 和 reviewing our procurement processes to make sure as many people as possible can use these services.

We ask third-party suppliers to provide links to their 可访问性 Conformance Report (ACR). They can do this using the Voluntary Product 可访问性 Template (VPAT). The template supports Section 508, EN 301 549 (PDF), 和 W3C/WAI WCAG.

bv1946官网支持 searchBOX项目, which provides a database of accessibility information about third-party vendors across the public sector. 你可以 search for third-party accessibility statements using the free searchBOX finder tool.
