Technical information about this website’s accessibility

The University of Glasgow 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 listed below.

Issues with PDFs and other documents 

  • Some of our older PDFs and Word documents may not meet accessibility standards – for example, they may not be marked up so they’re accessible to a screen reader. 
  • The accessibility regulations don’t 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. 

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). We do not plan to add text alternatives for archive images. If we publish new content we’ll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.
