How we tested this website

This system was last tested by the University of Edinburgh’s Deputy Disability Information Officer in February 2020 via sampling the majority of pages across the website. We tested the system on a PC using the browser Internet Explorer (11) as this is the browsers most commonly used by disabled users due to its accessibility features and compatibility with assistive technology, as shown by the Government Assistive Technology Survey.

We also tested a sample of the pages using an automated web accessibility checker - WAVE Web Accessibility Evaluation Tool WAVE Web Accessibility Evaluation Tool.

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

We will continue to work with the developer to address these issues and deliver a solution or suitable workaround.

We will continue to monitor system accessibility and will carry out further accessibility testing as these issues are resolved. However, due to the complex nature of the information displayed it may not be possible to resolve all accessibility issues. If this is the case, we will ensure reasonable adjustments are in place to make sure no user is disadvantaged. We plan to have resolved the majority of accessibility issues by September 2020 at the latest.
