We monitor our website using automated audit programs such as Google Chrome, Lighthouse and WAVE as these provide a snap shot for obvious issues.
We try to improve our websites accessibility in line with Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1). This international standard is used by certain law enforcement agencies around the world to measure accessibility. Whilst we appreciate the legal position we consider the user is a better judge of a websites accessibility and are actively pursuing a change in the law.
To comply with said legislations we sue AQA to run automated audits which generate a comprehensive audit report comparing the code on your website to the WCAG 2.1 standard.
We are very open and if you have any access issues please email me and I will endeavour to (a) sort out the issue or (b) if required we can try and provide the content using a different method.
