Using this website
This website is run by Brighton CCA, part of the University of Brighton. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website, however we know some parts of this website aren’t fully accessible. We are working hard to make our website more accessible.
How accessible this website is
We know some parts of this website aren’t fully accessible.
- Most older PDF and Word documents aren’t fully accessible to screen reader software. They can be accessed and read aloud through the Recite Me accessibility toolbar.
- We display all of our video content through YouTube, and captions can be enabled in the YouTube player. At the moment our videos are captioned automatically, so there might be some mistakes with words like Moulsecoomb (one of our campuses). We are working through them to improve the accuracy of the auto captions.
- 360 degree image and video content is not accessible to a screen reader.
- Live video streams don’t have captions.
- Maps will be difficult to navigate using just a keyboard. However we are currently working on a better way of tabbing through defined locations on our maps. This work is nearly complete and is currently going through user testing.
- Maps may be difficult to navigate on a screen reader. We have provided text-based directions to our main sites where possible.
