    This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.

    Issues with technology

    The vast majority of our website works correctly on any web technology.

    For security reasons, we only support TLS 1.2 and higher security protocols, and this means that some older browsers will not show the site.

    How our site looks and work is based on HTML5, and we test for and support the following browsers:

    • Google Chrome (versions in support)
    • Mozilla Firefox (versions in support)
    • Microsoft Internet Explorer (version 11 only)

    You may experience unexpected behaviour in other browsers, although we use fully validated code which should work on any browser.

    How we test this website

    The website is scanned using automated online tools, and browser accessibility checkers, on a regular basis to identify issues. Accessibility reports are reviewed by the IS website development team, with any actions taken and prioritised into our future work. We are currently reviewing commercially available web accessibility scanners to support this development and to have a baseline from which we can measure progress made.

    What we are doing to improve

    The website development team and content developers are actively reviewing all content and technology used on the website.

    All new documents are checked using accessibility scanners, and any issues resolved, before uploading to the website. The website development team are investigating alternatives to PDF.
