This accessibility statement applies to the Creative Media public website (https://www.creative-bham.co.uk) only.
This website is run by Creative Media, a department within The University of Birmingham. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:
zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)
We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible:
you cannot modify the line height or spacing of text
there are duplicate ID’s due to the Elementor plugin
certain parts of of our online forms are difficult to navigate using just a keyboard, specifically the date pickers
We’re always looking to improve the accessibility of this website. If you find any problems not listed on this page or think we’re not meeting accessibility requirements, contact: [email protected].
The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the ‘accessibility regulations’). If you’re not happy with how we respond to your complaint, contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS).
Creative Media 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 and exemptions listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Not applicable, there are no areas of the website that could be considered disproportionate burdens.
User’s are able to skip the repeated content in the page header (for example, a ‘skip to main content’ option).
Some of our interactive forms are difficult to navigate using a keyboard.
Our forms are built with third party software (plugins) and ‘skinned’ to look like our website.
Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs with information on how users can access our services, and forms published as Word documents. By September 2020, we plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.
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.
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
We do not plan to further develop accessibility features in our 360 imagery and video because it is built using third party software and is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
We will try and ensure online maps are as accessible as possible by creating an accessible word document containing any essential information portrayed by the map, but online maps are currently exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
Our accessibility roadmap, summarised below, shows how and when we plan to improve accessibility on this site. This roadmap is subject to change, and the site will continue to be audited and adjusted.
