Technical information about this website's accessibility
Meantime IT and Meantime AMaT are committed to making this 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 and exemptions' listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
- The podcasts are hosted with a 3rd part podcast hosting specialist. They have no text-based alternative. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.2.1: Audio-only and Video-only (Prerecorded).
- The tutorial video has text captions to describe the equivalent steps shown in the tutorial video but they do not look to be sufficient to be an alternative to the video content. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.2.2: Captions (Prerecorded).
- The podcasts are hosted with a 3rd part podcast hosting specialist. They have no text-based alternative. The tutorial video has text captions to describe the equivalent steps shown in the tutorial video but they do not look to be sufficient to be an alternative to the video content. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.2.3: Audio Description or Media Alternative (Prerecorded).
- Video content has captions but no audio description. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.2.5: Audio Description (Prerecorded).
- The website comprises of a main, single page. On that page there are links to "Find out more" and "Arrange a demo". As there is only one contact form, these links go to the same place. Whilst this could be combined to one link, this would reduce the opportunities for a user to see that the site is offering options for contacting them. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.4 Link Purpose (In Context).
What we're doing to improve accessibility
Our accessibility roadmap has identified potential improvements that we intend to make.
- A new podcast navigation will be created that links to a text transcript of each podcast episode. We aim to complete this improvement by the end of December 2023.
- A new video navigation will be created that links to a text and image variant of the video that will be compatible with screen readers also. We aim to complete this improvement by the end of December 2023.
- We will continue to monitor and review feedback and legislation, as well as technological advancements, to guide our future accessibility development improvements.
- All new features will be created with an 'Accessibility first' principle, building on the lessons we have learned.
The list above is not necessarily exhaustive, and we would always look to incorporate feedback given to us by users or interested 3rd parties, where applicable.
