Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board 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 listed below.
Whilst we endeavour to meet ‘WCAG 2.1 AA’ we currently have the following non-compliance issues:
Whilst we will prioritise patient information to ensure it is digitally accessible wherever possible, we know there are some sections of our website of a corporate nature, which are not currently accessible and have been produced since September 2018. For these sections, we will identify where we know documents are non-compliant and provide contact details wherever possible. As documentation is renewed in the future, we will ensure digital accessibility is considered. Currently, these sections are listed as below: (and subject to change).
The accessibility requirements do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they are not essential to providing our services. We do not plan to fix any PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018, for example Board and Committee Papers, Health Board policies and procedure documentation or statutory documentation such as Annual Reports. However, we will endeavour to make any new PDFs or other document formats accessible wherever possible.
We occasionally publish PDFs which contain ‘transcripts, scanned manuscripts or handwritten notes’ for example in FOI requests - these are outside of scope and will not be fixed.
We do not plan to add captions to live audio or video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations. However, we will always aim to provide subtitled versions of pre-recorded videos produced.
