Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Milton Keynes Council is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Website and Mobile Applications) (No.2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is currently being tested for compliance in accordance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard.
Content that is not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
PDFs and documents
Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have forms saved as PDFs.
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.
If you come across a PDF that is not accessible, please contact us so we can provide you with an alternative version.
We do not plan to add captions to live video streams, pre-recorded media published before September 20 as it is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
Interactive maps within this website may not work with screen reader software or be navigable using a keyboard. We don’t plan to fix these because online maps and mapping services are exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
This includes our cultural routes maps.
Third party content
Our site includes third party content and functionality. We cannot guarantee that all third party content is accessible. We are not responsible for any third party content.
Links to other websites
We often link to third party websites or documents when there is useful information that relates to our services. For example, official information sources, such as gov.uk or nhs.uk. We are not responsible for the accessibility of these or any other websites we do not manage.
Third party platforms
We often create content which is hosted on third party platforms. This includes:
- content we create for social media, such as Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter
- video which we host on YouTube
We are responsible for ensuring the content we supply meets accessibility requirements; however, we are not responsible for the accessibility of the platform itself.
For example, when we add video to one of our YouTube channels, we will ensure any subtitling, captions and audio-description are included as required. However, we are not responsible for the accessibility of the video player itself.
The interactive maps aren’t fully accessible for keyboard-only users. This issue sits with Google Maps and isn’t something we can currently rectify.
Our contact form error messages don’t have alternative text to help screen readers understand what is wrong with their form inputs.
