Technical information about this website's accessibility
The digital Access Team 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 not compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard. The non-compliances are listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
The dropdown items in the navigation are not accessible using only a keyboard. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criteria 2.1.1 Keyboard (A).
Leeds City Council logo
The Leeds City Council logo above the header has no accessible text available to users who are unable to see images. As this image also serves as a link it needs to have some text available to those users. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criteria 2.4.4 Link purpose (in context) (A) and 4.1.2 Name, Role, Value (A).
Our website has many instances of insufficient colour contrast between the text and the background colour. For example on the homepage the links within the Twitter feed have a contrast ratio of 2.99 and we must meet a minimum of 4.5:1. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.3 Contrast minimum (AA).
Multiple instances of the same ID
Each page of our website has multiple elements with the same ID value. A singular webpage may contain one ID per element but the value for each ID must be unique. The ID values specified multiple times on a page is "DataProvider". This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1 Info and Relationships (A) and 4.1.1 parsing (A).
Form elements with no labels
The distance selector on the
Events has no associated label or text that describes what the user should do to assistive technology users. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1 Info and Relationships (A) and 4.1.2 Name, Role, Value (A).
Images with no alternative text
The images within the Google Maps functionality on the events details page (such as
Telekinetic Rumours - Pani Pawlosky) haven't got any accessible text. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 Non-text content (A).
Content that's not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
