Technical information about this website’s accessibility
The City of Edinburgh Council 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.
Non accessible content
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Many of our PDFs and Word documents do not meet accessibility standards - for example, they may not be structured so they’re accessible to a screen reader. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2.
By January 2021, we plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.
The chat cannot be accessed without a mouse as it does not receive focus. This fails success criterion 2.1.1 keyboard.
The chat does not announce its responses properly, so cannot be used with a screen reader. This fails success criterion 4.1.3 status messages.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
Our older PDFs and Word documents do not meet accessibility standards - for example, they may not be structured so they’re accessible to a screen reader. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2.
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.
