Technical Accessibility Statement

Technical Information about this app’s accessibility

Aberystwyth University is committed to making its apps accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

Compliance status

This app is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances and exemptions listed below.

Non-accessible content

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

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Some tiles in the app use images which don’t have a text alternative. This means that the information in them isn’t available to people using assistive technology. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 Non-Text Content.

Some tiles and icons in the app do not have names. This means that people using speech to text will be unable to access them. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.5.3 Label in Name.

Some icons and buttons in the app are too small. This means that it can be hard for some people to activate them. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.5.5 Target Size (AAA)

Some tiles in the app do not have sufficient contrast between the colour of the text and the colour of the background. This means that the text is difficult to read for people with visual impairments. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.3 Contrast (Minimum).

Some tiles in the app are marked up as buttons but don’t have an associated action. This is confusing for all users as they expect an action to occur when activating the button.  This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 Name, Role, Value.

Some tiles and links in the app menu don’t have names or link text. This means that people using assistive technology don’t know what each of the tiles or menu items does. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.4 Link Purpose (In Context).

Disproportionate burden

We will shortly be moving to MyDay Version 3, the latest version of this app, provided by Collabco. This means that the benefits of making improvements to the current version of the app would be small and short lived. We believe that making these improvements now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations.

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

We are upgrading to the latest version of this app and will ensure that any customisations are accessible.
