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

- You cannot modify the line height or spacing of text.
- Most older PDF documents are not fully accessible to screen reader software.
- Not all videos have full captioning.
- There’s a limit to how far you can magnify the map on our ‘contact us’ page.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility
TBHub 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 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
- You cannot listen to, or increase the size of some text that is within chart and diagram images. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content). We are working on supplying these in more accessible formats and provide descriptive text.
- You cannot modify the line height or spacing of text. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.12 (text spacing)
- Not all videos have full captioning. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.2.2 (Captions (pre-recorded))
- Some visual elements such as icons are inserted into the page via CSS and as such may not be read by screen readers, however, these are purely for presentational purposes and have no impact on the meaning of the content they are related to. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content)
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
PDFs and other documents
Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs with information on how users can access our services, and forms published as Word documents. We plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.
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.
Online maps and mapping services
We use an online map on our ‘contact us’ page, there is a limit to how far you can magnify the map.
We do not plan on making any changes to this because online maps and mapping services are exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
Essential contact information is provided in an alternative accessible digital manner.
What we’re doing to improve accessibility
We continuously work on enhancements to our website (www.tbhub.co.uk) and content workflows to achieve and maintain AA accessibility compliance for site functionality and all new content.
We provide web accessibility focused training for website editors, including promoting the use of the WAVE extension to test their pages
