The University of South Wales is committed to making this 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 [insert one of the following: ‘the non-compliances’, ‘the exemptions’ or ‘the non-compliances and exemptions’] listed below.
We formally test the accessibility of our website on a regular basis against WCAG 2.1 AA standards.
Some parts of the website may not work for everyone. Below are known issues that we either need to fix, cannot fix, or do not need to fix right now. If you find something that does not work that we missed, remember to contact us.
This section covers issues that we need to fix and are working to do so.
We may need to work with 3rd party suppliers to fix some issues.
While most text throughout Primo meets minimum color contrast standards, but there are cases where text does not have enough contrast with the background color. (WCAG 1.4.3)
Most of the website can be navigated with a keyboard alone, but there are several areas that are currently hard to access. For example, navigating out the Send To actions in the Primo Full record display. (WCAG 1.4.13)
There are status messages in Primo that are not automatically announced by the screen reader. Areas where status is not announced include:
· When the user starts typing a keyword in the search fields, the content updated at the bottom "X search results found' is not announced
· User clicks on "Save Changes” in My Library Card
Some of our page elements use the same Identifier in HTML - Duplicate IDs are common validation errors that may break the accessibility of labels, e.g., form fields, table header cells. (WCAG 4.1.1)
Some of our page elements are missing useful ‘ARIA’ information to help users identify context.(WCAG 1.3.1)
We are not claiming disproportionate burden for this site.
This section covers issues that we do not need to fix right now. The law calls these exemptions.
FINDit links to some content on third-party sites. We do not have control over and are not responsible for the accessibility of this content, but we may be able to help if you contact us.
