Accessibility

This accessibility statement applies to the website at stfillanscc.org.uk.

This website is run by St Fillans Community Council. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. This  means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts using your browser or device
  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • 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.

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

 

How accessible this website is

We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible:

  • live video streams do not have captions
  • our two online forms may be difficult to navigate using just a keyboard

We’re always looking to improve the accessibility of this website. If you find any problems not listed on this page or think we’re not meeting accessibility requirements, contact us at https://www.stfillanscc.org.uk/feedback.php

 

Enforcement procedure

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the ‘accessibility regulations’). If you’re not happy with how we respond to your complaint, contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS).

 

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

St Fillans Community Council is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

 

Compliance status

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard.

 

Non-accessible content

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).

 

Navigation and accessing information

There’s no way to skip the repeated content in the page header (for example, a ‘skip to main content’ option).

It’s not always possible to change the device orientation from horizontal to vertical without making it more difficult to view the content.

It’s not possible for users to change text size without some of the content overlapping.

 

Interactive tools and transactions

Our interactive forms may be difficult to navigate using a keyboard because some form controls are missing a ‘label’ tag.

We’ve assessed the cost of fixing the issues with navigation and accessing information, and with interactive tools and transactions. We believe that doing so now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations. We will make another assessment when the supplier contract is up for renewal.

 

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

PDFs and other documents

Most of our PDFs and Word documents are related to St Fillans Community Council agendas, minutes and reports and also to the walks around the village.

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.

*We are working to ensure that all future PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards. As of February 2021 all our New PDFs are subjected to accessibilty tests carried out by the eAccessibility PDF checker and are based on the WCAG 2.0 (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) PDF Techniques.

Live video

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