Technical information about this website’s accessibility
The University of Kent is committed to making readinglists@kent accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
readinglists@kent is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances and exemptions listed below.
We formally test the accessibility of key user journeys that represent the breadth of content across our website on a regular basis against WCAG 2.1 AA standards.
If you find something that does not work that we missed, remember to contact us.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
This section covers issues that we need to fix and are working to do so.
readinglists@kent is provided by Talis Aspire. Talis' policy is to meet, and - where possible - exceed the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG) at Level AA. View the Talis accessibility statement page which provides guidance about compatibility with assistive software and adaptations you can make in your browser. This includes access to the Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) for Talis Aspire.
This section covers issues that we cannot fix right now. We’ve assessed the cost of fixing these issues but believe that doing so would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the law.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
This section covers issues that we do not need to fix right now. The law calls these exemptions.
readinglists@kent is a tailoreed version of a third-party platform developed by Talis. We do not have control over and are not responsible for the accessibility of some parts of the platform, but we make best endeavours to work with the third-party to improve its accessibility. Please see the Talis Aspire accessibility page for further information.
To help accessibility compliance across the sector, the University of Kent supports searchBOX, a centralised, independent directory of third-party accessibility information.
searchBOX catalogues the contact information and accessibility statements of third-party suppliers, enables the sharing of community-generated accessibility statements, and allows users to map their supplier ecosystem.
Users can access third-party accessibility statements using the free searchBOX Finder service.
The University of Kent encourages all our partners and suppliers to support this effort by ensuring that their accessibility information is included in the searchBOX directory.
