Accessibility on Imperial Hackspace site

This statement relates only to web pages with a web address beginning www.imperialhackspace.com/ which are pages on the main Imperial Hackspace website. For other web addresses you should refer to the accessibility statement for that domain or sub domain.

We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • Read text clearly no matter where it is used
  • Use your keyboard to skip to main content
  • Navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • Listen to most of the website using a screen reader
  • Resize the website to the size of your window, and display a readable text size whichever device you are using
  • Zoom in up to 175% without the text spilling off the screen

 

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

 

We work to achieve and maintain WCAG 2.1 AA standards, but it is not always possible for all our content to be accessible, for example:

  • Many PDFs and other documents are not fully compatible with screen readers
  • Most video content does not have captions, transcriptions or audio descriptions

Where content is not accessible, we will state a reason, warn users and offer alternatives.
