Accessibility Statement

Last updated November 2022

The Weston Park Cancer Charity website has been designed and developed with the aim to make our content accessible to all, taking into account the needs of people no matter how they access and use the site. For example a person with a visual impairment should still be able to use the site just as well using a screen reader, as someone using the site visually.

We have built the site based on international guidelines and standards using Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG), published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

How we test

We check all our pages against the WCAG checkpoints, using manual and automated tools to highlight any issues, working to ensure all pages on this website conform to level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1

We recognise that some aspects of the site do not yet meet the criteria, but we are working hard to have fixes in place as soon as possible.

Technology used

We manually test the site using various tools, operating systems and devices to ensure the site is fully functional using the following:

  • NVDA screen reader (latest version) on PC.
  • JAWS 2022 screen reader (latest version) on PC.
  • VoiceOver screen reader for Mac, iphone and ipad (iOS).
  • Voice Control, voice recognition navigation for iOS.
  • Talkback screen reader for Android devices.
  • Keyboard only navigation of the site using a desktop or laptop computer.
  • Latest versions of browsers including, Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Firefox and Safari.

We also increase browser magnification up to 300% to ensure the page still functions with a much bigger font size

Known issues

We still have a few issues that we are aware of and will apply fixes for these as soon as possible.

Make a donation page

Some of the labels within the donation form don't make sense out of context when using a screen reader, making it difficult to navigate effectively using a screen reader alone.
