Measures to support accessibility

IWNL takes the following measures to ensure accessibility of IWNL

Conformance status

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) define requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. IWNL is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.

Using our site

We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. This means that you can:

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
We also provide assistive technology, enabling all website visitors to customise their experience through a range of options to suit their online accessibility and language needs.

Known limitations

Whilst we try to maintain a high standard of accessibility on our website, there are some known limitations. These are documented below.

Non-accessible Content

Below we have listed where the IWNL is reporting non-accessible issues in regard to single A and Double AA WCAG success criteria.

Between our test team and development team, we will actively process all errors throughout the website using the Accessibility scanner to resolve issues and mitigate new errors as content is changed and created.

Reporting Accessibility Problems with this Website

We’re always looking to improve the accessibility of this website. If you encounter content that you cannot access, then please contact us and we will provide you with an accessibility alternative.
