Technical information about this website’s accessibility

The Ministry of Justice 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-compliance issues listed below.

Non accessible content

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

Non compliance with the accessibility regulations

  • Headings for job descriptions are not marked up programmatically as headings. This fails WCAG 1.3.1 A (Info and Relationships). This is due to the original source content automatically extracted from a database owned by a 3rd party.

Disproportionate burden

Not applicable

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

Embedded videos hosted on YouTube, Vimeo and other media players include non-accessible elements that are native to the video platform. For example this means buttons to play videos are not descriptive enough for screen reader users as the context of the video is not clear. This fails WCAG 2.4.6 AA (Headings and Labels).
