TU Dublin Web Accessibility Statement
Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin) is committed to making its websites accessible, in accordance with the European Union (Accessibility of Websites and Mobile Applications of Public Sector Bodies) Regulations 2020.
This statement applies to content published on www.tudublin.ie
Our websites are designed to be:
- Technically accessible, allowing all users to access information and functionality.
- Equally usable, enabling users with disabilities to carry out tasks without significant difficulty or time constraints.
- Adaptable, allowing individual users to configure the websites according to their specific needs and preferences.
- Compatible with widely available assistive technologies used by users
TU Dublin strives to achieve "Level AA" conformance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 and comply with the National Disability Authority's Code of Practice on Accessibility of Public Services and Information Provided by Public Bodies. Additionally, we aim to ensure mobile accessibility as new devices emerge and incorporate accessibility considerations when procuring third-party systems or upgrading existing systems.
Currently, TU Dublin monitors the accessibility of a majority of its websites through automated accessibility testing. These websites include all sites within the TU Dublin domain hosted by TU Dublin under our own DNS.
The websites affiliated with TU Dublin partially comply with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 at level AA , due to the non-accessible content below.
We continuously work on improving compliance with the "A" and "AA" standards. We are actively addressing the following issues:
- Some images lack informative and descriptive alt text.
- Links, buttons, and controls do not change appearance when selected.
- Insufficient colour contrast in some text for visually impaired users.
- Some PDF documents are not fully accessible.
- Some video content lacks closed captions.
- Infographics: We have a number of infographics with text which do not have correct descriptions, meaning a user using assistive technologies will not learn of the information contained in the graphic
This content is not an exhaustive list of non-accessible content.
PDF documents that were published before 23 September 2018 are exempt from these guidelines except where it is related to a service that a member of the public has to use.
Videos or audio published before 23 September 2020 are exempt from these guidelines.
