The Standards and Testing Agency and Capita plc are committed to making this 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 listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons:
To enforce a controlled timeout of forms, meta refresh value is set to non-zero value which can cause issues with some screen readers. We are unable to resolve this issue without compromising the general usability and security of the solution.
The site does not contain a site map or table of contents as it is not presenting an informational website in the traditional sense but rather a user account interface and set of transactions driven by web forms. In view of the nature of the application and how it will be used we do not believe a site map is relevant or useful.
