Accessibility Statement for Events

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

Conformance status

It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. Events is partially conformant with WCAG 2.0 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.

Limitations and alternatives

Known limitations for Events:

  1. Images: Some images do not have alt attributes becausebecause of the design of the layout. We will improve the layout to correct the problem. In the meantime, please contact us for support.
