Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Compliance status

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the ‘non-compliances’ listed below.

Non-accessible content (non-compliances)

We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible and, are therefore, ‘non-compliant’:

Old Pdf files

  • Old pdf, word & powerpoint files published prior to September 2018 fall outside the scope of accessibility legislation and we have no plans to fix these as they don’t provide sole access to key services. This is an exemption.

Forms

  • Certain parts of our forms need improving, such as button focus and form labels, including autocomplete. We will work with the third party supplier to address this.

Heading structure

  • While we recognise the importance of proper heading structure, and promote its use with our content editors, there are a few areas of the site which cannot be headed up correctly until we recreate a new version of the website using an enhanced platform.

YouTube

  • Some videos on the Sector pages, Humber profile and resource sub-pages have automatically generated captions which were partially incorrect. We amend LMI Humber and East Riding Council produced videos by November 2021.  Any new uploaded LMI Humber and East Riding Council videos will have accurate captions. 
  • Some videos on the Sector pages, Humber profile and resource sub-pages do not have an audio track or a transcript.

Third party content

We’re also aware that some third party websites or systems that this website links to, or integrates with, are not accessible and may have issues, such as:

  • missing skip links
  • not able to navigate using speech recognition software
  • unable to be listened to using a screen reader
  • poor contrast
  • text on images where no alt-text is provided

Where possible we are working with these suppliers to address these, and other accessibility issues. Please read more about addressing issues with third party suppliers and ‘disproportionate burden’.

Disproportionate burden

Our website contains ‘third party content’. These are systems that we link to, or are embedded into our site, such as the careerometer and skillsometer.

We do not have control over, and are not responsible for, the accessibility of this content but we endeavour to continue working with the third party to improve its accessibility.

We’ve assessed the cost of fixing the accessibility issues with such sites and we believe that doing so now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations.

We will make further assessments when the supplier contracts are up for renewal.

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

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. For example, we do not plan to fix old committee meeting minutes and agendas, or publicity material used for marketing purposes.

We will aim to meet accessibility standards with any new PDFs or Word documents we publish.
