Compliance Status

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.

Non-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Elements don't have sufficient contrast ratio

The blue branding, orange and green text used across the site does not meet contrast requirements. Other minor elements across the site such as search placeholder text and grey meta text. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.3 Contrast (Minimum).


Multiple instances of the same ID

Each page on our website has multiple elements with the same ID value. A singular webpage may contain one ID per element but the value for each ID must be unique. The ID value specified multiple times is called "DataProvider". This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1 Info and Relationships (A) and 4.1.1 parsing (A).


Some parts of page are not keyboard accessible

The submenu of our website is not keyboard only accessible so users cannot navigate effectively. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.1.1 Keyboard.


Links have no discernible text

The Leeds City Council logo at the top of pages across the site has no screen reader friendly text so the full URL will be read out. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.4 Link Purpose (In Context) and 4.1.2 Name, Role, Value.


Form elements don't have labels

Some of the form labels are not programmatically linked to their inputs. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1 Info and Relationships and 4.1.2 Name, Role, Value.


Certain ARIA roles must contain particular children

Using ARIA landmarks to identify regions of a page

The member's area of the website does not break the page up into landmark areas, this hinders keyboard navigation of the page. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1 Info and Relationships and 2.4.1 Bypass Blocks.


<html> element must have a lang attribute

The website has no set language for the document so assistive technology users may not have words pronounced correctly. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 3.1.1 Language of Page.

Focus state must be visible

The focus styling is not prominent enough and will cause keyboard users problems navigating the pages. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.11 Focus Visible.
