Web Accessibility Statement

Accessibility of this website

At a basic level on this website you should be able to:

  • Change colours, contrast levels and font type, size, and colour

  • Zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen

  • Listen to content using a screen reader

  • Access website content through a translator tool

 

Our goal for compliance is level AA, and so we are currently addressing any outstanding issues that fall in or below this category (WCAG A or AA).

Our last website accessibility compliance audit was: April 2024.

 

Known issues

Full compliance audit findings can be found on our .

We are working hard to action a fix to these issues, inline with our Issue Resolution guidelines.

The outstanding level A, high-occuring issues with our website compliance as found in the last audit are:

  • Duplicate ID (159 occurrences)

  • Presentation warning (53 occurrences)

  • Obselete markup (35 occurences)

  • Missing alt text (13 occurrences)

 

We are also aware there are existing issues with the accessibility of our online content, and we are working to resolve them. The known issues with our website and online content are listed below:

  • Some of our content is only available in PDF format. Furthermore some of our older PDF documents may not be fully accessible to screen reader software.

  • Although we meet the AA compliance standard for colour contrast, some of our webpages use colour that may make digestion of content difficult for some users.

  • Some of our older documents, such as our previous Impact Reports, are presented via digital publications on Issuu which contains information not accessible by a screen reader.

  • Some of our content may not use appropriately nested headers or descriptive hyperlinks.

 

What we’re doing to improve our website accessibility

How we monitor website accessibility

Auditing the website

We carry out a regular accessibility audit of the 港彩开奖 website to identify any issues for resolving.

We use the to scan the website, which produces the below reports:

  • Compliance - provides information on the site’s level of compliance with WCAG. The report identifies compliance issues against all 3 levels: A, AA, and AAA.

  • Broken links - provides information on any broken links (a web page or document that can’t be found or accessed by a user).

Issue resolution

We know there are currently a lot of issues on the 港彩开奖 website, and so it’s important to have a prioritised approach to resolving issues found. 

We assess priority by using information on:

  • If the issue is level A, AA or AAA.

  • If the issue is on a high traffic or important page (one which includes critical information or functionality).

With this prioritised approach to issue resolution we expect to achieve consistent progress over the next 12 months, eventually reaching our goal of WCAG AA full compliance.

Issue resolution SLAs for WCAG compliance issues

Our issue resolution times for compliance issues found on the yusu.org domain

Priority level Issue Level (A/AA) Page/s SLA for action taken
1 A Top 10 pages or website accessibility statement 4 weeks
2 A Any page (not top 10) 4 weeks
3 AA Top 10 pages or website accessibility statement 8 weeks
4 AA Any page (not top 10) 12 weeks

 

How we test the website

We commit to testing any new web pages or features before going live to users, using our outlined testing process which addresses website accessibility. The testing we carry out when developing a web page or new feature is a mix of both manual and automated testing.

Our testing process

Manual testing
  • Our developers test that content is responsive through window resizing using browser developer tools.

Automated testing
  • Our developers use the automated scanner to identify any errors found against the WCAG guidelines.

  • We also use AccessLint, a GitHub application that monitors any code we upload to our GitHub repository. Although not all website code is stored in GitHub, it does contain some key components that are used across the 港彩开奖 website and so this provides us with another layer of automated checking for accessibility issues.

 

港彩开奖’s digital accessibility mission and strategy

Accessibility plays a large role in our Digital Strategy - which outlines our mission to provide accessible and usable digital services.

There are 3 core elements to embedding a successful strategy to improve our digital accessibility. These are:

  • Compliance

  • Culture

  • Education

We are undergoing many pieces of work to improve our digital accessibility - including delivering a Digital Accessibility Framework for the organisation, improving our website usability, and working with 港彩开奖’s new EDI strategy. More detailed information can be found in our Introduction to Digital Accessibility at 港彩开奖.
