When considering whether we can meet the accessibility requirement, we will assess:
how much the work would cost and the impact that carrying out the work would have on us
how much users with a disability would benefit from us carrying out the work
Following the assessment, if we decide that meeting the accessibility requirement would be a disproportionate burden, we will explain this in our accessibility statement and provide details of how you can request the information in an accessible format.
Something which is a disproportionate burden now will not necessarily be a disproportionate burden forever. If circumstances change, we will re-assess whether we can meet the accessibility requirement.
Progress so far
Fixes to pages which contained headings with missing text
Updates to the Visit South Tyneside website to:
Make sure content is structured logically and can be navigated and read by a screen reader
Make sure every feature can be used when text size is increased by 200% and that content reflows to a single column when it's increased by 400%
Make sure the website is responsive to the user's device, page orientation and font size they like to use
Make sure your service works well with assistive technologies - for example, important messages are marked up in a way that the screen readers knows they're important
Make sure everything works for keyboard-only users
Provide a 'skip to content' link
Make sure users can move through content in a way that makes sense
Make sure features look consistent and behave in predictable ways
