Technical information about this website’s accessibility
The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Derbyshire 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 of the images on our website function as links and are also adjacent to text links. These both navigate to the same place. This can create extra unnecessary work for keyboard and assistive technology users. This fails WCAG 2.0 success criterion 2.4.4 Link Purpose
- There is no focus indicator on our website as keyboard users tab through content. This can make it difficult for sighted keyboard users to recognize their location on a page. This fails WCAG 2.0 success criterion 2.4.7
We have not deemed any results identified in the Accessibility Audit to be a Disproportionate Burden at this time.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
PDFs and other documents
The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services. Alternate accessible versions of older documents can be considered upon request as outlined in Feedback and Contact Information above.
When active documents on the site are updated in the normal schedule of work they will either undergo accessibility augmentation, or when suitable, replaced with accessible HTML pages to meet accessibility standards.
Even though video captions are exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations we do endeavour to add captions to live video streams when appropriate.
Any videos on our website published before 23rd September 2020 may not have captions available and some have visual content that requires an audio description. Even though these videos are exempt from the regulations we do endeavour to add captions to essential and future videos where needed to ensure these are partially accessible.
What we’re doing to improve accessibility
We launched a new website in November 2021 to match required accessibility criteria, and constantly review our content to ensure it meets requirements.
