Accessibility Statement for Events

Swansea University Digital Humanities team 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.

Measures to support accessibility

Swansea University Digital Humanities team takes the following measures to ensure accessibility of Events:

Conformance status

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. Events is not assessed with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Not assessed means that the content has not been evaluated or the evaluation results are not available.

Additional accessibility considerations

Although our goal is WCAG 2.1 Level AA conformance, for the time being we are tracking the accessibility issues found by our assessment, and this web site will be updated as resources allow.


We welcome your feedback on the accessibility of Events. Please let us know if you encounter accessibility barriers on Events:
