Darlington Borough Council 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 listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
On the What's On page the venue tiles at the end of the feed all have the same IDs. This does not meet WCAG 2.1: Success Criterion 4.1.1: Parsing.
Some of the PDF's on our website are not in an accessible format due to not being machine readable or missing certain landmarks such as headers. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 (name, role value). Where the documents have been created by us we will fix these issues. Where the documents are given to us by third parties such as pubs, shops and restaurants we will provide links to their websites and social media where the information within the PDFs should also be available.
This website is tested every 6 days. The tests are carried out by the Darlington Borough Council web team using Siteimprove’s accessibility reports. Tests are scheduled automatically and are monitored by the web team.
Our accessibility roadmap below shows when we aim to fix the issues on this site.
|Issue||Target Fix Date|
|4.1.1: Parsing||October 2023|
|4.1.2 Name, Role, Value||April 2024|
