Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Lincoln College Library Team 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, due to: ‘the non-compliances’, listed below.

Non-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.

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).

Some video content does not have a text alternative. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.2. (Provide alternatives for time-based media.).

We plan to continue to add text alternatives for all images and videos where possible. Some videos are created and hosted through third party software so it is not always possible to add text alternatives, however when we publish new content we’ll try to make sure our use of images and media meets accessibility standards.
