不成比例的负担

导航和获取信息

There’s no way to skip the repeated content in the page header (for example, “跳到主要内容”选项). 这失败了WCAG 2.1成功标准2.4.1(绕过块).

It’s not always possible to change the device orientation from horizontal to vertical without making it more difficult to view the content. 这失败了WCAG 2.1成功标准.3.4(方向).

It’s not possible for users to change text size without some of the content overlapping. 这失败了WCAG 2.1成功标准.4.4(调整文本).

交互式工具和事务

Some of our interactive forms are difficult to navigate using a keyboard. 例如, because some form controls are missing a ‘label’ tag.

Our forms are built and hosted through third party software and ‘skinned’ to look like our website. 这失败了WCAG 2.1成功标准.3.1(信息与关系).

We’ve assessed the cost of fixing the issues with navigation and accessing 信息, 还有互动工具和交易. gpk电子认为,现在这样做将是一个 不成比例的负担 within the meaning of the accessibility regulations. gpk电子将在2020年9月进行另一次评估.

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

pdf和其他文档

Many of our older PDFs and Word documents published before 23 September 2018 do not meet accessibility standards - for example, they may not be structured so they’re accessible to a screen reader. 它不符合WCAG 2.1成功标准4.1.2.

Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. 例如, we have PDFs with 信息 on how users can access our services, 以及以Word文档形式发布的表单. By September 2020, we plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.

可访问性规定 don’t require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 如果他们对提供gpk电子的服务不是必不可少的. Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.

视频直播

实时视频流没有字幕. 它不符合WCAG 2.1成功标准.2.4(字幕-现场).
