Technical Information About this Website’s Accessibility

Recite Me is committed to making its website accessible, in line with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

We aim for conformance with the WCAG 2.1 (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1) at level AA.

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.

Non-accessible Content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.

Known elements within the website do not conform to 1.3.1 and 4.1.2 making it difficult for assistive technology to convey information successfully.

  • We aim to add correct aria labelling to improve how assistive technology can convey the information by 01/01/2021

Known elements on smaller screens do not conform to 1.4.12: AA and 1.4.4: AA making it difficult for the visually impaired to read.

  • We aim to fix this with changes to the styling and layout by 01/01/2021

Elements included from remote sources fail to comply with 2.1.1: A and 4.1.2.
