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

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.

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.
