About Keble

Accessibility Statement

This website is run by Keble College, Oxford. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website, and we are working towards bringing it in line with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard (WCAG).

Our website currently allows users to:

change text colours;

zoom to 400%; and

read out words

We know that some parts of this website are not fully accessible and we are tackling the most pressing issues now. We hope to have resolved them by January 2020. We also know that there are other issues we need to address, and we will try to do these as soon as possible, and by December 2020 at the latest.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

How accessible this website is

We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible. For example:

Images do not have a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information.

The website does not currently provide multiple ways to navigate to a page, such as a sitemap or site-wide search.

Many of our older PDFs and Word documents do not meet accessibility standards.

Some elements on the website do not have sufficient colour contrast, specifically the gold on white and white on gold text, and also text on photograph backgrounds.

Some components, such as the image gallery, require specific timings for individual keystrokes.

There’s no way to skip the repeated content in the page header (for example, a ‘skip to main content’ option).

Meaningful content positioned on the page using CSS does not retain its meaning when CSS is disabled.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Keble College 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-accessible sections are listed below.

Non accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Images do not have a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 1.1.1.

Some lists are not constructed correctly. This fails WCAG 1.3.1

There isn’t a well-defined order on the heading elements and their meaning. Some things that look like headings visually aren’t coded as headings. There can only be one H1 (most important heading) on a page. This fails WCAG 1.3.1 and WCAG 2.4.6

Meaningful content positioned on the page using CSS does not retain its meaning when CSS is disabled. This fails WCAG 1.3.2

The site sometimes uses colour as the only visual means for conveying meaning. This fails WCAG 1.4.1

Some elements on the website do not have sufficient colour contrast, specifically the gold on white and white on gold text, and also text on photograph backgrounds. This fails WCAG 1.4.3

Some components, such as the image gallery, require specific timings for individual keystrokes. This fails WCAG 2.1.1

Users are not always able to navigate away from all components using a keyboard. This fails WCAG 2.1.2

There’s no way to skip the repeated content in the page header (for example, a ‘skip to main content’ option). This fails WCAG 2.4.1

Not all buttons and links have discernible text. This fails WCAG 2.4.4 and WCAG 4.1.2

The website does not currently provide multiple ways to navigate to a page. This fails WCAG 2.4.5.

Many of our older PDFs and Word documents do not meet accessibility standards – for example, they may not be structured so they’re accessible to a screen reader. This does not meet WCAG 4.1.2.

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

Some functional pages used by our alumni to update their details and book for events are services based on a different technical platform (‘Alumni Online’ DARS BBIS) but ‘skinned’ to look like our website.

How we tested this website

This website was last tested on 07/05/2019. The test was carried out by a third party auditor commissioned by our web developer, One Ltd.

An Accessibility Testing Page was set up by One Ltd for the purpose of the audit containing a representation of common elements and ‘strips’ used throughout the website.

We tested:

our main website platform, available at https://www.keble.ox.ac.uk/

our campaign microsite, available at https://anniversary.keble.ox.ac.uk/

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

We have commissioned our web developer to amend code to enable alternative text on images. We plan to input text alternatives for all images by February 2020. When we publish new content we’ll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.

We are working with our website developer to create a sitemap for the site, and to add site-wide search by February 2020 so that the site is navigable in multiple ways.

Many of our older PDFs and Word documents may not be structured so they’re accessible to a screen reader. By February 2020, we plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.

We are in discussion with our web developer to resolve all other known issues and are planning on starting work on this by December 2020 at the latest.
