Compliance status

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

We believe the website to be fully accessible at the current time aside from external content mentioned below in the Disproportionate Burden section, any non-accessible content will be added here if discovered.

Disproportionate burden

Our embedded videos and other external media are hosted on third party platforms such as YouTube and Vimeo. These platforms do not yet fully support audio description so we are unable to provide this separate audio track. This fails WCAG success criterion 1.2.5 Audio Description (Pre-recorded).
