Accessibility on the VeTSS website

This statement applies to content published on https://vetss.org.uk. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to: 

  • Navigate most of the website using just a keyboard 
  • Listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver). 
  • Resize to the size of your window, and display a readable text size whichever device you are using 
  • Zoom in up to 175% without the text spilling off the screen 

AbilityNet also has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability. 

How accessible the website is 

Parts of this website are not fully accessible. For example: 

  • some pages have poor colour contrast 
  • some heading elements are not consistent 
  • some buttons are not correctly identified 
  • many older documents in PDF format are not fully accessible 
  • some tables do not have row headers 

What we do about known issues 

We are 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 known issues listed below. 

Non accessible content 

Some documents and content are exempt from the regulations (such as live video content and PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services), so we do not currently have any plans to make them accessible. But if you need to access information in one of these document types, you can contact us and ask for an alternative format 

Reporting accessibility issues 

If you need information on this website in a different format like accessible PDF, large print, easy read, audio recording or braille or if you find any accessibility issues not listed on this page then please contact Teresa Carbajo Garcia at t.carbajo-garcia@imperial.ac.uk or Petar Maksimovic at p.maksimovic@imperial.ac.uk . We’ll consider your request and get back to you within seven days. 

Enforcement procedure 

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the ‘accessibility regulations’). If you’re not happy with how we respond to your complaint, contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS)
