This accessibility statement applies to Ada, the National College for Digital Skills website.
We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. To adapt the content to your needs or preferences you should be able to:
change colours, contrast levels and fonts
zoom in up to 300% 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.
We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible:
live video streams do not have captions
there’s a limit to how far you can magnify our images
Some images which convey meaning do not have an informative text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information
Some of our older PDFs and Word documents may not provide the information required by assistive technology. We are striving to make older documents accessible and ensuring new PDFs and Word documents published after September 2018 meet the WCAG 2.1 AA standards
Some online forms are not set up correctly to include helpful direction for screen reader users.
What to do if you can’t access parts of this website
If you need information on this website in a different format like accessible PDF, large print, easy read, audio recording or braille, please email email@example.com
We’ll aim to get back to you within 15 working days.
