Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Aldercar & Langley Mill 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 partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.

Non accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons. • Some Scanned PDF documents which have handwritten comments

Non compliance with the accessibility regulations

Some PDF images don’t have a text alternative, so the information in them isn’t available to people using a screen reader. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (Scanned image-text content). We plan to rectify all scanned image PDFs as soon as we can. When we publish new content we’ll make sure our use of PDF scanned images meets accessibility standards.

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations PDFs and other documents

Many of our Scanned image PDFs and Word documents don’t meet accessibility standards – for example, they may not be structured so they’re accessible to a screen reader. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2

Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
