Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Giant Digital Ltd is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

Compliance status

The website has been tested against the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.2 (opens in new tab) AA standard.

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.2 (opens in new tab) AA standard, due to the non-compliances’ listed below.

Non-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

  • Some images do not have a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 2.2 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content). We plan to add text alternatives for all images by the end of July 2024. When we publish new content we’ll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.
  • Pages containing breadcrumb navigation are missing ARIA referencing. This fails WCAG 2.2 success criterion 1.3.1 (Info and Relationships). We plan to resolve this in July 2024.
  • It is not possible for users to change text size without some of the content overlapping. This fails WCAG 2.2 success criterion 1.4.4 (Resize Text) and we plan to resolve this by the end of July 2024.
  • There’s no way to skip the repeated content in the page header (for example, a ‘skip to main content’ option). WCAG 2.2 success criterion 2.4.1 (Bypass Blocks). We plan to resolve this by the end of July 2024.
  • Some keyboard navigable elements on the homepage do not show as visually display focusable despite functioning as such. This issue appears to be specific to Firefox users of the site. This fails WCAG 2.2 success criterion 2.4.7 Focus Visible. Please see Disproportionate burden section for more details.

Disproportionate burden

Two keyboard navigable elements on the homepage do not visually display as focusable despite functioning as such while using Firefox (all correct on other browsers). This relates to WCAG 2.2 success criterion 2.4.7 Focus Visible and we, upon assessment, believe that resolution would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations. We will make another assessment in the future.

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

PDFs and other documents

Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
