Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Greater Manchester Combined Authority 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.

Non accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.

Navigation and accessing information

The accessibility of embedded video content is dependent on the standards reached by the third-party provider. Where possible we will make use of features such as subtitles to ensure our content is accessible. Some iframe video embeds are missing the “title” attribute. When we add new videos we will ensure it has captions available and the title attribute in the iframe.

Data

We sometimes publish and link to visual data using platforms such as Tableau (opens in a new tab). This information is hosted on an external website and we make our information as accessible as the platform allows.

Not all data visualisations within documents (e.g. team structures) can be made accessible. Where possible we will include the same information in plain text alongside the visualisation and/or provide alt-text with the chart.

Third-party content

Third-party content on our site that is neither funded nor developed by, nor under the control of, the public sector body may also not be accessible. For example slides accompanying webinars and social media widgets and plugins – for example the Twitter feeds on our homepage.

How we tested this website

This website was last tested on 31st August 2021. The test was carried out externally by Bauer Create.

We checked a broad sample of pages on the website, including the homepage and a selection of other pages. We used a free-to-use developer tool which checks each page against standard accessibility issues. A manual audit was also conducted. Each of the issues was logged, and an action plan formed and implemented for the website.

If you are unable to access a document, please contact us. We’ll consider your request and get back to you.

We plan to annually review website accessibility, and ensure that any new pages or PDFs and other online documents conform to web accessibility criteria.

This statement was prepared on 5th August 2021.
