Accessibility

This statement applies to the G7 Presidency website

How accessible this website is

The G7 Presidency website is run by the G7 Presidency Task Force within the Cabinet Office. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • zoom in up to 400% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate parts of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We’ve also made the website test as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the ‘accessibility regulations’).

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

The G7 Presidency Team 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

We are aware that this website is not currently fully compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard. 

We aim to continually improve the website to ensure compliance to the required accessibility standard is achieved. 

Non-accessible content

You may experience issues with areas of this website that are not fully accessible. For example, we’ve found the following:

  • Non-text content across the website is not currently accompanied by alternative text. This will present an issue to those using audio description devices to navigate images published on the website as they will not be informed of the content. This fails success criterion 1:1:1 of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines: non-text content.
  • The non-functional animation on the home page may distract users aided by technology. This also contravenes success criterion 1:1:1 of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines: non-text content and we are working to correct this.
  • The contrast in colour between foreground content and web page background may present readers with difficulty distinguishing content in places since this falls below the required standard. 
  • The focus indicator may not be entirely visible in places to those reliant only on the keyboard to navigate the website. This fails success criterion 2:4:7 of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines: focus visible.
  • Those without the capacity to hear the content of live video will experience a barrier due to the unavailability of captions. This fails success criterion 1:2:4 of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines: captions (Live). Please note we will aim to make this feature accessible to all though live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
  • Paragraph line length is approximately 120 characters in places which may affect the readability and navigability of the web pages.

There may be further barriers to navigating this website. Please do not hesitate to contact the G7 Task Force team if you identify any barriers not listed above or are experiencing an accessibility issue with the website. 

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

We want to make sure our online service fully meets level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG version 2.1) in line with The Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

In order to help us achieve and maintain this objective, we will commission a technical compliance audit which will include extensive testing by users with a wide range of disabilities.

The completion of  any recommended changes to the website following the audit are expected to be completed in November 2021, whereupon will update this statement.
