Accessibility Statement

This accessibility statement applies to content published by SRC’s Content Management System on the domain.

This website is run by Southern Regional College. Digital accessibility is a primary consideration in our web development practice as we want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • zoom in up to 300 per cent without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand. AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

How accessible this website is

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Compliance status

SRC 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 fully compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard.

Disproportionate burden

We are not claiming disproportionate burden for this website.

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

PDFs and other documents

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.

Live video

Live video streams do not have captions. This fails 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.

Third party content

The SRC website contains some content that is externally embedded or integrated. This is third-party content that is neither funded nor developed by, nor under the control of, the public sector body.

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

We will continue to upload content and publish documents in line with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard. We will continually review the accessibility of our website using automated tools and other testing methods where necessary. This will provide us with the insights required to assess and improve aspects of our websites should future testing indicate they do not conform to WCAG 2.1 Level AA.
