Regulations state that all public sector websites and mobile apps must meet accessibility standards and publish an accessibility statement.
We are currently developing an accessibility checklist to enable us to complete a basic accessibilty audit of the GM Access website1. During the audit we will test whether a sample of the pages on this website is accessible against the international WCAG 2.1 AA accessibility standard.
Following the audit we will publish an accessibility statement along with a plan to fix any accessibility problems that are found during the audit.
1. The Government guidelines https://www.gov.uk/guidance/make-your-website-or-app-accessible-and-publish-an-accessibility-statement state that an organisation can undertake a basic accessibility audit if undertaking a detailed accessibility audit places a ‘disproportionate burden’ on it.
