Website Accessibility Statement
West Rise Community Infant School Website Accessibility
We are always working to improve our website accessibility. Should you find any problems or issues that are not listed on this page, or if you think that we are not meeting the requirements of the accessibility regulations, we would love to hear from you.
This website is run by West Rise Community Infant School, we want as many people as possible to be able to use this website.
Example, you should be able to:
- zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
- navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
- change colours, contrast levels and fonts
- listen to most of the website using a screen reader
- navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use.
How accessible is our current website:
Pointing Devices - Level A
Some users are unable to use a mouse, so use the keyboard instead. Add an equivalent keyboard event handler to help these users.
This Means: An image that responds to a mouse click to go to another page. This is a failure because the keyboard cannot be used to move to the next page. This does not comply with WCAG 2.1 A F54.
Failure of Success Criterion 2.1.1 due to using only pointing-device-specific event handlers (including gesture) for a function.
This Means: Some images that responds to a mouse click to go to another page. This is a failure because the keyboard cannot be used to move to the next page. This does not comply with WCAG 2.1 A F15 and WCAG 2.1 A F54.
The same ID is used on more than one element.
This Means: The search function on the website is used across multiple pages and has the same ID element, this does not comply with: WCAG 2.1 A 4.1.1.
Each a element must contain text or an img with an alt attribute.
This Means: A link name allows screen readers to voice what the links does. If there is no link text or the `alt` text is blank, screen readers have nothing to read, so read out the URL instead. This does not comply with WCAG 2.1 A F89.
Some iframes do not have a title.
This Means: Without a title some screen readers read out the frame filename, which is usually meaningless. This does not comply with WCAG 2.1 A 2.4.1.
Link uses general text like 'Click Here' with no surrounding text explaining link purpose.
This Means: Screen reader users use text around links to help understand what the link does. If the link text is very general, and there is no surrounding text, there is no way to work out what the link does. This does not comply with WCAG 2.1 A F63.
Other – Level AA - Background Colours
Ensure that text and background colours have enough contrast.
This Means: Some users find it hard to read light Grey text on a white background, dark Grey text on a black background and white text on a red background. This does not comply with WCAG 2.1 AA 1.4.3.
Other – Level AAA - Target Window
Avoid specifying a new window as the target of a link with target=_blank.
This Means: Displaying new windows without warning can be very confusing to visually impaired and mobile users. Some screen readers and mobile devices give very little indication a new tab or window has opened. This does not comply with WCAG 2.1 AAA F22.
