This website is run by Pisys Limited. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:
- zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
- 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.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Pisys Limited is committed to making its 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.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
Some images do not have a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content).
We try to add text alternatives to all new images - we're working on fixing all existing images and hope to have this completed by Q4 2023. When we publish new content we’ll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.
Some Buttons do not have an accessible name, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content)
We are fixing these issues as we encounter them, and hope to have all of our current buttons fixed by July 2023.
Background and foreground colours do not have a sufficient contrast ratio, so some people may find it difficult to clearly see the information on our web pages. This fails WCAG 2.1. success criterion 1.4.6 (Contrast).
We're fixing these issues every time we do a new release, but we're aiming to have all the contrast issues fixed by August 2022
Heading elements are not in a sequentially-descending order. This means that navigation by keyboard may be confusing. This fails WCAG 2.1. success criterion 3.2.3 ( Consistent Navigation)
We aim to resolve these issues by September 2022.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
PDFs and other documents
Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs with information on how users can access our services, and forms published as Word documents. By September 2020, we plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.
The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services.
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
What we’re doing to improve accessibility
We're now incorporating accessibility checks into our build process. This means that rather than having stand-alone audits we will be testing with every release - this means that we will be picking up and fixing issues in smaller numbers over shorter periods.
