Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. We will look to review and update PDFs and Word documents moving forward.
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.
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
We will continue to use Siteimprove to monitor any new and on-going accessibility issues and do cycles of work to rectify where possible.
