Technical information about this website’s accessibility
RFCA for Greater London 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 non-compliances listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
PDFs and non-HTML documents
Some documents are not accessible in a number of ways including missing text alternatives and missing document structure. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 Non-text Content and 1.3.1 Info and Relationships.
We will be reviewing PDF and non-HTML documents that are essential to users of our website. By December 2022, we plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages. Where possible we are replacing any new PDFs or Word documents with HTML pages or an accessible PDF.
If you require a PDF document in an accessible format such as large print, easy read, audio recording or braille, please email [email protected].
Some videos are not accessible in a number of ways including missing audio description and text alternatives. This means users with visual impairments may not be able to see the content. This fails WCAG 1.2.1 Audio-only and Video-only (Prerecorded), 1.2.3 Audio Description or Media Alternative (Prerecorded) and 1.2.5 Audio Description (Prerecorded).
We plan to add audio descriptions or text alternatives for all videos by September 2023. When we publish new content we’ll aim to make sure our use of videos meets accessibility standards.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
PDF and Word documents
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.
