Technical information about
this website’s accessibility
Lichfield City Council is committed to
making its website accessible, in accordance with
the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications)
(No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is currently partially compliant with the
Web Content Accessibility Guidelines
version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-
compliances listed below.
There may be pages with read more
/ click here links. See WCAG 2.4 Success Criterion 4.4 (Link
Purpose (In Context)
There may be some pages where
HTML isn’t perfectly formed, such as
stray end tags. See WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.1 (Parsing).
Many of our older PDFs and
Word documents don’t meet
accessibility standards - for example, they may not be
structured so they’re accessible
to a screen reader. See WCAG 2.1 success criterion
4.1.2 (name, role value).
Some images on the website pages may not have a text
alternative, so the information on them
isn’t available to people using a screen reader. See WCAG 2.1 success criterion
1.1.1 (non-text content).
When we publish new content, we’ll
make sure we meet accessibility standards where possible.
