Technical information about this website’s accessibility

The Police Ombudsman’s Office  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 listed below.

Non-accessible content

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

A small number of images do not yet have a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 2.0 success criterion 1.1.1 Non-text content

We plan to add text alternatives for all images by 30 November 2020. When we publish new content we’ll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.

PDF Accessibility

Some of our PDFs accessible via our website do not current meet accessibility requirements. We are currently working on these to make sure they meet accessibility requirements and so far we have added alt text to many of the images and graphs contained in PDFs published since September 2018.   By 31 December 2020 we plan to fix all other accessibility issues present in any of our PDFs published since September 2018.

Any new PDF documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
