This statement applies to content published on the https://visitconwy.myshopify.com/ domain. This website is managed by Conwy County Borough Council under the Visit Conwy brand. 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
We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
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. We are working on these parts of the site and are committed to producing an accessible site for all users.
Content that is not accessible
- Images. Images on pages do not always have suitable alternative text. Some images are missing alternative text and some have incomplete text. This fails WCAG 1.1.1A success criterion (Non-text Content). We plan to identify and fix these by December 2020.
- Forms. Some of our online forms are difficult to navigate using just a keyboard.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
- Third party content such as descriptions from suppliers. We do try and monitor the content that third parties provide for our website such as images, descriptions and documents. However sometimes due to resources this may not be possible. Some documents that third parties have provided have not been developed or paid for by ourselves, and therefore might not reach the accessibility standards required.
This website complies with The public Sector Bodies (websites and Mobile Applications)(No.2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
Details of the information excluded under regulation 4(2) and regulation 7(4) are shown below.
Most of the content on our site has been reviewed and rewritten so that it conforms to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). However, we have examined a number of pages where the reading ease of the content is poor. We've assessed the cost of fixing these documents and we believe that the cost of this work would be a disproportionate burden as outlined in the accessibility regulations. However, we will ensure that any new pages added meets the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).
