For example, this means you should be able to:
- Zoom in up to 200% without the text spilling off the screen
- Navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
- We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
If you have a disability. the AbilityNet website contains guides and step by step instructions on how to adapt your phone, computer or tablet to meet your needs.
Whilst this is a new website, developed with accessibility needs in mind, it is possible that some content may not be fully accessible:
- Some newer PDFs or Word documents may not meet accessibility standards as defined by the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018. Where this is the case, accessible versions can be created on request
- Live video streams and video recordings may not have captions.

Content that is not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
PDFs and other documents
As this is a new website, we have endeavoured to update as much content as possible to meet the latest standards. Any older PDFs and Word documents may not meet accessibility standards – for example, they may not be structured so they’re accessible to a screen reader. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 (name, role value). However, they may be exempt from the legislation.
Some PDFs or Word documents published after 23 September 2018 may not meet accessibility standards. Where this is the case, an accessible version is available on request. We are working towards making these documents accessible.
Live video streams do not have captions. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.2.4 (captions – live).
We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
