Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Birmingham Organising Committee for the 2022 Commonwealth Games Ltd 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.

Non accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

We plan to add text alternatives for all new images by September 2020. When we publish new content, we’ll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.

Disproportionate burden

Navigation and accessing information

It’s not always possible to change the device orientation from horizontal to vertical without making it more difficult to view the content. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.4 (orientation).

It’s not possible for users to change text size without some of the content overlapping. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.4 (resize text).

Interactive tools and transactions

Some of our interactive forms are difficult to navigate using a keyboard. For example, triggering the ‘register your interest’ form could be difficult to open from the homepage.

We’ve assessed the cost of fixing the issues with navigation and accessing information, and with interactive tools and transactions. We believe that doing so now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations.

Ensure that text and background colours have enough contrast.
WCAG 2.1 AA 1.4.3 Section 508 (2017) AA 1.4.3

If you set any of the colours on the body or an element you must set all of them.
WCAG 2.1 AA F24 Section 508 (2017) AA F24

The CSS outline or border style on this element makes it difficult or impossible to see the dotted link focus outline.
WCAG 2.1 AA F78 Section 508 (2017) AA F78

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

PDFs and other documents

  • Many of our older PDFs and Word documents do not meet accessibility standards – for example, they may not be structured so they’re accessible to a screen reader. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 (name, role value).
  • Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs with information on how users can access our services, and forms published as Word documents. By September 2020, we plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.
  • The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services.
  • Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
