Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Veggie Desserts 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.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
Some images do not have a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content).
We plan to add text alternatives for all images by September 2020. When we publish new content we’ll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.
We plan to update our link texts so that they become more accessible by December 2020. When we publish new content we’ll make sure our link text meets accessibility standards.
This site is not claiming a disproportionate burden.
Interactive tools and transactions
Our forms are built and hosted through third party software and ‘skinned’ to look like our website.
We’ve assessed the cost of fixing the issues with navigation and accessing information, and with interactive tools and transactions. We believe that doing so now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations. We will make another assessment at the end of 2020.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
