This website has been designed to be accessible. Our website has been built with the WordPress content management system, this website is partially compliant with the current Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard. This is due to the non-compliances listed below.
The content that is not accessible is outlined below with details of:
Images missing text alternative
Some images lack alternative text. Screen-reader users will not be able to understand the content, but the underlying data is provided wherever possible. This falls under the 1.1.1 (A) We aim to have fixed the images with missing text alternatives by April 2021.
PDFs and other documents
Some PDF files on our website do not meet accessibility standards – for example, they may not have titles defined or a language set, additionally, they may not be structured so they are accessible to a screen reader. This does not meet WCAG success criterion 2.4.2, 3.1.1 and 1.3.1 respectively. We plan to have all documents uploaded from January 2021 will be accessible and will use the Tingtun Checker validator tool to validate this.
Sexual Health Sheffield does not have the budget to amend and re upload all PDF’s placed on the website between 23rd September 2018 and 31st December 2020 so they meet AA level accessibility requirements.
PDFs and other documents
Some documents are not accessible in a number of ways including missing text alternatives and missing document structure.
The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services. https://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2018/952/regulation/4/made
