Technical information about this website's accessibility

Fareham Borough 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 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 form fields do not have associated labels, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content), 1.3.1 (Info and Relationships), 3.3.2 Labels or Instructions, 4.2.1 (Name, Role, Value).

We plan to have this fixed before November 2020.

 

Some sections of our website have mouse dependent content, so people using a keyboard cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.1.1 (Keyboard).

We plan to have this fixed before November 2020.

 

Some sections of our website have moving content that can't be paused, so people who need more time to view the content are unable to do so. This fails WCGA 2.1 sucess criterion 2.2.2 (Pause, Stop, Hide).

We plan to have this fixed before October 2020.

 

Our payment portal does not have sufficient colour contrast for some parts of the page. This fails WCGA 2.1 sucess criterion 1.4.3 (Contrast -Minimum).

We plan to have this fixed by 15 October 2020.
