Accessibility statement for Universities for Nottingham website – January 2020
This website is run by the University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University in partnership. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:
- change colours, contrast levels and fonts
- zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
- navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
- 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.

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:
- Tableau Map on the Statistics Page

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
Our Report and Methodology Report PDFs
The PDFs are not accessible by keyboard only control. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.1.1 (Keyboard).
The PDFs are not structured in a way that makes them accessible by screen reader technology. This fails on WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 (name, role value).
Word versions of the documents are available on request. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Tableau Map on the Statistics Page
Not all of the areas within the Tableau map data feed are accessible via keyboard only control. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.1.1 (Keyboard).
Some areas of the Tableau map data feed have user interface components and graphical objects with visual presentations that do not have a contrast ratio of at least 3:1. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.11 (Non-text Contrast).
Some areas of the Tableau map data feed have text with a visual presentation that does not have a contrast ratio of at least 4.5:1. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.3 (Contrast (Minimum)).
Tableau states that the map section of the data feed is non-compliant with WCAG 2.1 accessibility standards at this time and have not given a timeframe when this will be made compliant.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
How we tested this website
This website was last tested in January 2020. The test was carried out by Optima Graphic Design Consultants Ltd.
We tested our main website platform, available at www.universitiesfornottingham.ac.uk
We used this approach to decide on a sample of pages to test:
Testing approach and method
A full and thorough test was carried out on all aspects of the website using a variety of methods and tools including screen reader technology (VoiceOver), keyboard only control, W3C Validator tool, WAVE browser plugin, WebAIM contrast checker, and WCAG 2.1 How to Meet WCAG (Quick Reference) online guide.
Each page template was checked, in a variety of browsers including Chrome, Safari and Firefox, against success criterion for both WCAG 2.1 A and WCAG 2.1 AA standards using the above tools and a checklist was written detailing how each section of the website conformed to the standards.
Where one page template was used to output multiple pages (stories pages), a wide selection of pages were also checked to ensure compliance with the standards.
This statement was prepared on 14th January 2020.
