navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)
We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Wildlife Ways 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.

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

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Some images do not have a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content). We will be working towards addressing this.

Some PDF’s and other documents are not accessible in a number of ways including missing text alternatives and missing document structure. We plan to have all documents added from September 2020 pass the Tingtun Checker test http://checkers.eiii.eu/en/pdfcheck/ (excluding experimental tests).

Disproportionate burden

PDFs and other documents

Some documents are not accessible in a number of ways including missing text alternatives and missing document structure.

Please Contact Us if you require a document in an alternative format or to report a specific issue.

Live video

We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
