Accessibility Statement

This accessibility statement applies to the website www.wavehill.com

This website is run by Wavehill Ltd. We are a social and economic research company that recognises the importance of providing a website that is accessible to users.

Accessible features on our website

As part of the design process, we have been mindful to consider inclusive design principles. This includes:

  • Using a colour pallet that is optimised to meet AAA standards

  • Using site plan and breadcrumb navigation

  • Having useful and appropriate hyperlinks and call to action buttons

  • Ensuring the use of Alt Text across the site

  • We have sought external advice from Chemical Code on how we can improve the design

We know that some parts of our website are not fully accessible

  • Some PDFs uploaded may not be fully accessible to screen reader software. Where this is the case please get in touch, we may be able to provide this information in a different format such as a word document. The Userway app (see below) can also convert PDFs into more accessible formats

Where there are gaps in our approach, we are using a widget from Userway.org to provide additional functionality to support users with accessibility needs. This enables the content on the website to be WCAG compliant. The functionality includes:

  • Screen reader functions

  • Dictionary lookups without leaving the site

  • Changing text size, height and spacing

  • Changing colour and saturation

  • Highlighting links

  • Dyslexia friendly font

  • Bigger sized cursor

  • Page structure

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

  • Wavehill is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with Accessibility Regulations 2018.

  • Whilst we strive for this website to be compliant with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard guidelines, this will be tested once development work is completed and the site is launched

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

  • Live audio and video. If a live video is kept on the site for more than 14 days, then it is considered a pre-recorded video and may no longer be exempt.

  • Third-party content outside of the control of the organisation

  • All new video content produced by us on this site is available to watch with subtitles. Sometimes, if we embed other’s videos, they may not have open or closed captions. We strive, where we can, to promote their usage in many environments.

Preparation of this accessibility statement

This statement was prepared on the 6th June 2022. 

This website will be launched in July 2022. Once launched, we will undergo a review of accessibility using WCAG guidance
