Accessibility

This accessibility statement applies to the website www.platinumjubilee.gov.uk.

This website is run by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. 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 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most 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 text as simple as possible to understand.

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

How accessible this website is

We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible:

  • the embedded maps on this site may not be accessible to users with screenreaders, who may find it hard to identify the marker pins and close popup information windows (the map is a means of navigating event information, which is also provided in the listing of events, which we believe is keyboard-navigable and screenreader accessible)
  • the event submission form currently does not allow you to preview your answers in full before submitting them, and you need to use the arrow keys to move between options within fields, rather than tab.

Feedback and contact information

If you need information on this website in a different format like accessible PDF, large print, easy read, audio recording or braille, email jubilee.events@dcms.gov.uk.

We’ll consider your request and get back to you within 10 days.

Reporting accessibility problems with this website

We’re always looking to improve the accessibility of this website. If you find any problems not listed on this page or think we’re not meeting accessibility requirements, email jubilee.events@dcms.gov.uk.

Enforcement procedure

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’). If you’re not happy with how we respond to your complaint, contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS).

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

DCMS 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 believe this website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard due to the non-compliances below.

Non-accessible content

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

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

  • We believe the embedded maps on this site may not be accessible to users with screenreaders. Specifically, keyboard navigation of the map, closing popup information windows and text alternatives for marker pins are all currently inaccessible. The map view of events is mainly presentational, and the equivalent information can be found below in the listing of events, which we believe is keyboard-navigable and screenreader accessible. We will be replacing the map with a more accessible version before the end of 2021.
  • The event submission form currently does not allow you to preview your answers in full before submitting them (WCAG checkpoint 3.3.4). The form also does not use fieldsets, so users need to navigate between radio buttons using the arrow keys rather than tab, which is more usual. We hope to address both of these before the end of 2021.

Please tell us if you experience problems by email to: jubilee.events@dcms.gov.uk

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

We will be introducing a new, more accessible version of the map and the option to review form submissions before they are finalised, before the end of 2021.
