Accessibility statement for spheresofperception.com

This website is run by WIX. 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 200% 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 

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.

We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible:

  • the text will not reflow in a single column when you change the size of the browser window

  • you cannot modify the line height or spacing of text

  • most older PDF documents are not fully accessible to screen reader software

  • live video streams do not have captions

  • some of our online forms are difficult to navigate using just a keyboard

  • you cannot skip to the main content when using a screen reader

  • there’s a limit to how far you can magnify the map on our ‘contact us’ page

If you need information on this website in a different format like accessible PDF, large print, easy read, audio recording or braille:

We’ll consider your request and get back to you in 14 days.

We’re always looking to improve the accessibility of this website. We are committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

The website is fully compliant if the website meets WCAG 2.1 AA standard in full. Say that it’s partially compliant if it meets most requirements of the WCAG 2.1 AA standard. If it does not meet most requirements of the WCAG 2.1 AA standard, say that it’s not compliant.

If your website is either partially compliant or not compliant WCAG 2.1 AA standard, you’ll need to explain why. This will be due to one or both of the following:

  • non-compliances - this means the content in question is in scope of the regulations, but there’s an accessibility problem with it

  • an exemption - this means the inaccessible content is out of scope of the regulations, or it’d be a disproportionate burden for you to make it accessible

There’s a legally required way of expressing the compliance status of your website, so do not change it. The 3 options are as follows:]

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard

‘Disproportionate burden’ and ‘Content is not within the scope of the accessibility regulations’

Some of our interactive forms are difficult to navigate using a keyboard. For example, because some form controls are missing a ‘label’ tag.

Our forms are built and hosted through third party software and ‘skinned’ to look like our website.

We’ve assessed the cost of fixing the issues with navigation and accessing information, and with interactive tools and transactions. We believe that doing so now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations.
