Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Bishopsteignton Parish Council is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No.2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
We have tested the accessibility that represent the breadth of content across our website. Some parts of the website may not work for everyone.
If you find something that does not work that we have missed, please contact us, as above.
Below are known issues that we are working on to fix.
Many of our older PDFs and Word documents do not meet accessibility standards – for example, they may not be structured so they are accessible to a screen reader. See WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 (name, role value)
We will correct documents from September 2018 as we review each page.
Insufficient alt text
Some images contain text which cannot be read by assistive technology, such as screen readers.
Any relevant text is included in the image’s alt-text, which is visible to assistive technology.
Branded text such as logos, slogans or other marketing messages, may not be included in the alt-text if they are not relevant to what the image is conveying.
We will correct insufficient alt-text over time as we review each page.
We will correct the names of hyperlinks as we review each page.
We will correct headings as we review each page.
Content that is not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
PDFs and other documents
Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. We plan to fix these documents so that they are accessible.
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
