Technical information about this website’s accessibility

M&C Saatchi 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 and exemptions listed below.

Non-accessible content

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

Where present, ‘Download’ links do not announce additional information relating to their location via screen reader. This is a failure of WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.4 Link Purpose (In Context).

Word documents that are present on the site contain non-inline graphics and objects. This is a failure of WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.2 Meaningful Sequence.

Non-Compliance with the accessibility regulations

Some images have incorrect alternative attributes, this includes informative images lacking a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This is a failure of WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 Non-Text Content this applies to British Values Toolkit 2020  to request an accessible version please email counter.extremism@education.gov.uk

Disproportionate burden

We’ve assessed the cost of fixing the issues with third party tools. We believe that doing so now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations.

The issues relate to:

HTML validation errors are present across all pages which may impact users of assistive technologies. This is a failure of WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.1 Parsing.

PDF documents present on the site do not contain XMP titles. This is a failure of WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 Name, Role, Value.

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: EAH_Parents-Booklet_2018_English_AW_V3.pdf (staging.educateagainsthate.com)

Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.

Live video

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