Technical information about this website’s accessibility
The non-compliances we are aware of are listed as:
Content stored in PDF documents may not be accessible to screen reader software (WCAG 4.1.2).
Some embeds for 360 tours are not accessible with just a keyboard. (WCAG 2.1.1)
Embeds of our seating plans have no integrated keyboard accessibility to allow visitors to select seats. (WCAG 2.1.1) This is due to a third party provider of our ticketing system (Spectrix) and we are working with them to improve this.
We are aware of some links around the website using generic titles such as ‘Find out more’ or ‘Learn more’ and we will be changing all these to be more descriptive. (WCAG A 2.4.4)This will be completed by the end of 2023.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
Our website at large does provide alternative text for all images (WCAG A 1.1.1) but Google Maps’ interface doesn’t pass this requirement.
