Accessibility statement for Resilience of the UK Food System in a Global Context. This accessibility statement applies to www.foodsystemresilienceuk.org/.

This website is run by Environmental Change Institute, University of Oxford. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • zoom in up to 200% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

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

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

UK Food System Resilience Group 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

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances and exemptions 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 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content).

When we publish new content we’ll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.

Some pages do not have sequential headings which can be confusing for anyone using a screen reader. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.10 (section headings).

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

PDFs and other documents

We feature PDFs of publications which are not essential to our services, but are of interest to the reader. We are unable to control accessibility of PDFs hosted or designed by external organisations. PDFs that we do have control over will be accessibility tested before they are added to the website, and where it is appropriate, we will create HTML versions of short documents.
