Non-accessible content

Content that is not accessible is outlined below with details of where it fails the success criteria:


Aria label issues on the AI Map page

Currently the package used to create the AI Map has the inability to place aria-labels on the markers. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 (name, role value) and we hope to fix this issue by 30/3/2024. If you would like an accessible version of the markers, contact ncai@jisc.ac.uk.

Third-party tools


We embed YouTube videos on the site. We know there are accessibility issues with these features. We dont have accessible alternatives and, as we dont control the platform, are unable to make the changes required to improve them. If you would like an accessible version of any video on the site, contact ncai@jisc.ac.uk.
