About the accessibility of this website

We have completed accessibility checks for this website.
We know some parts of this website aren’t fully accessible:

  • You cannot modify the line height or spacing of text
  • Most older PDF documents are not fully accessible to screen reader software
  • Whilst non-necessary cookie settings can be updated, we intend to improve some of the announcements so they are clearer for screen reader users
  • ‘Back to Top’ link only sends the visual part of the site to the top, it doesn’t re-set the focus order
  • Tabbing beyond the page footer doesn’t currently return focus back to the top of the page

We are working to improve our website and will update this accessibility statement accordingly. For questions and support on any of the accessibility concerns above, please refer to the next paragraph of this document.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

The Jermaine Baker Inquiry 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-compliance issues listed below.

Non accessible content

2.1.1 Keyboard – tabbing beyond the footer doesn’t return the user back to the top of the page – we are continuously developing our website and will provide a fix as soon as it is available

2.4.3 Focus Order – some of the focusable content could be optimised to provide better accessibility when navigating by keyboard – we are continuously developing our website and will provide a fix as soon as it is available

Disproportionate burden

Not applicable

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

PDFs and other documents are not accessible in a number of ways including missing text alternatives and missing document structure. View the accessible document policy of the organisation that published the document to report any problems or request documents in an alternative format.

Error messages on some forms using WordPress plug-ins are unclear or lack clear association with particular form controls. This fails WCAG 2.1A 3.3.1 success criterion (Error Identification).

How we tested this website

We have completed accessibility checks using a combination of automated software checks, manual tests using a keyboard, and some common assistive technology (including JAWS and NVDA). The tests were carried out by the Home Office.  We also recognise that the tests were not exhaustive and as such we remain open to feedback which will help us to improve the accessibility of this website.

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

We will monitor the accessibility of this website on an on-going basis and fix any accessibility issues reported to us.
