Accessibility Statement for leedstrinity.ac.uk

This website is owned and managed by Leeds Trinity University. We want as many people as possible to be able to use and enjoy this website.

For example, that means you should be able to:

  • Change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • Coom in up to 200% without the text spilling off the screen
  • Navigate the website using just a keyboard
  • Navigate the website using speech recognition software
  • Listen to the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)
  • Understand the content that we have published

We have recently redeveloped our content to make the website text as simple as possible to understand and have lowered the average reading age across the website as a consequence.

Our new website

This is our new website which was launched on 20th February 2020.

The website launch followed an 18-month programme of work which included:

  • User research
  • The procurement of a new web Content Management System (CMS)
  • The procurement of a new search solution
  • The development of a digital pattern library
  • Content redevelopment

This is very much a minimum viable product (MVP) and work is still being undertaken to improve and refine our website.

How accessible is this website?

  • We know some parts of this website are not yet fully accessible.
  • There are some pages on which the colour of the text and the colour of the background are not in sufficient enough contrast to each other.
  • Some images and image links are missing alternative text.
  • We have a number of documents, including documents in PDF format, that are not yet fully accessible.

What are we doing about it?

These issues are being addressed, to be rectified by summer 2020.

We have recently launched an accessible Word document template, and this is being rolled out across the University so that any Word documents and PDFs online will be accessible.

Our colour palette and image-use is being reviewed and user-tested in the coming weeks.

Training courses are being run with colleagues across the University who will be developing and publishing content to the new website.

Ongoing testing and reviewing will continue over the coming weeks and months and is embedded within the Digital Team's 'business as usual' activities.
