UAL 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 and exemptions below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Our embedded videos are hosted on third party platforms such as YouTube and Vimeo. These
platforms do not yet fully support audio description so we are unable to provide this separate audio
track. This fails WCAG success criterion 1.2.5 Audio Description (Pre-recorded).
We have implemented a new design system on the website and have released a number of new components for our editors to use. Components are the building blocks of our website, including buttons, cards and banners, which can be combined in various ways to create our webpages. These components were designed and built with accessibility in mind and every component has gone through or will go through further accessibility testing.
In some areas of the site, old components are still in use and these may not be accessible. We are in the process of updating all pages on the site so that they use our new components.
We recognise we have a lot more to do to ensure that all the documents on the website are accessible.
We have audited the website for PDFs and are working with our content editors to help them to fix the accessibility of our documents.
Please contact us if you have difficulty with any of the documents on the site and we will work to provide you with the content in an alternative, more accessible format.
We regularly review the content on our website and work with our content editors to ensure that the content is meeting user needs and follows best practice.
Fashion District is a subsidiary of University of the Arts London. UAL are developing accessibility training for UAL staff which includes accessible content and accessible documents training. There is also an accessibility information hub on our intranet that staff can refer to.
We are prioritising the accessibility issues above and we’re aiming to fix the high priority issues first that have the biggest impact on our users.
