This accessibility statement applies to the website hosted under the openevent.aquinas.ac.uk subdomain but not the main college website or other websites associated with Aquinas College.

At Aquinas College we want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • 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.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Aquinas College is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

Compliance status

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

  • Some videos do not have text transcripts available
  • PDF documents provided by the website have not been checked for accessibility.

Disproportionate burden

Some HTML code fails to validate when using the WCAG HTML validator tool. Fixing many of these issues would require complete redevelopment of the theme which controls the front end of the website and doesn’t directly affect the usability or accessibility of the website.

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

We are currently in the process of training staff to ensure that all new content meets the accessibility guidelines. We also plan to tackle some of the issues that cause the website not to meet all the WCAG guidelines.
