Accessibility Statement (Click Here)

 

This accessibility statement applies to Southwater Parish Council’s website hosted at: https://southwater-pc.gov.uk/default.aspx 

This website is supported by IntouchCRM. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate using just one finger
  • tell where you are on the page
  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.



How accessible this website is

We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible:

  • you cannot modify the line height or spacing of text (but you can expand your device screen size to magnify pages)

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Southwater Parish 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 fully compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard.

 

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

PDFs and other documents

Some of our PDFs are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs for meetings and agenda.

 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.
