Culture Collective is committed to ensuring digital accessibility for people with disabilities. We are continually improving the user experience for everyone, and applying the relevant accessibility standards.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. https://culturecollective.scot is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard. This site is still in development and we are running an accessibility audit as part of the development process to address any outstanding issues.
Culture Collective is committed to accessibility for our network and wider audiences, so we take the following steps to make all of our communications material as accessible as possible.
- Format documents, website and social copy with screen readers in mind, e.g. high contrast, avoiding background graphics behind text.
- Ensure all PDFs are accessible for screen readers.
- Include alt text for all images.
- Use a minimum font size of 11pt.
- Caption all videos we create.
- Strive for short and clearly audible videos, and simple, active sentences.
We welcome your feedback on the accessibility of the Culture Collective website. Please let us know if you encounter accessibility barriers and we will do our best to make improvements:
