This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.
Aria Hidden Elements Contain Focussable Elements
Our GDPR compliance statement functionality uses modals and these contain focussable elements. Some screen readers will not be able to access this.(WCAG 4.1.2).
Accessibility for keyboard only users
Our GDPR compliance statement uses a pop up tab at the bottom of the screen to open its main user interface. This tab is not currently accessible to keyboard only users and limits access to this functionality. (WCAG 2.1.1)
Form Elements Must Have Labels
The third-party e-commerce functionality we use does not assign labels to to the input fields containing the quantity of the items to be purchased. This can cause issues for certaion screen readers and other assistive technologies. (WCAG: 1.3.1, 4.1.2)
ID attributes must be unique
The third-party e-commerce functionality we use duplicates element ids in its code. In some cases this can cause issues for screen readers and other assistive technologies. (WCAG: 4.1.1)
Images must have alternative text
The third party application, Google Maps, used by this website does not provide alternative text for certain images and so does not meet WCAG 2.1 AA accessibility standards. (WCAG: 1.1.1)
Frames must have a title attribute
The third party application, Google Ads, used by this website does not provide an iFrame title. (WCAG: 4.1.2)
We are currently working to fix these issues and expect to have completed all necessary fixes by the end of 2020.
