Technical information about this website’s accessibility

MPE-CDT is committed to making its website 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 known issues listed below.

Non accessible content

The content that is not accessible is outlined below with details of:

  • where it fails the success criteria
  • planned dates for when issues will be fixed

We know that some parts of this website aren’t yet fully accessible. For example:

  • Some Graphics are unlabelled and non-focusable
  • Line height and spacing of text cannot be modified
  • Some older PDF, Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents are not fully accessible to screen reader software
  • Some multimedia content doesn’t yet have audio, captions or text description

Some documents and content are exempt from the regulations (such as live video content and PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services), so we do not currently have any plans to make them accessible. But if you need to access information in one of these document types, you can contact us and ask for an alternative format.
