Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Norwich University of the Arts is committed to making its websites 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 and exemptions listed below.

Non-accessible content

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

While text can be zoomed, it is currently not possible for users to modify the text spacing or line height. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.12 (Text Spacing). We are looking at a way we can implement this in the future.

We plan to review these issues in October with the aim of fixing them in November 2020.

Disproportionate burden

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

PDFs and other documents

Student’s have supplied PDFs of further work. These are not essential to providing our services and we do not plan to fix these.

Video captions

Student-supplied videos don’t have captions or transcripts. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.2.1 (audio-only and video-only pre-recorded), 1.2.2 (captions pre-recorded), 1.2.3 (audio description or media alternative pre-recorded) and 1.2.5 (audio description pre-recorded). The regulations do not apply to recorded videos published before 23 September 2020. These are not essential to providing our services and we do not plan to fix these.
