MetaCompliance Accessibility statement 

Last updated: 14th December 2022 

MetaCompliance Ltd are working towards to making its websites, plugins, desktop applications and mobile applications accessible to all, regardless of ability. 

The MyCompliance Platform is partially compliant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Some parts of the platform do not fully conform to the accessibility standard; however, we are working towards improving this. 

For example: 

Some images and icons do not have alternative text 

Some video content does not have a related transcript. 

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


How accessible this website is 

  • Some pages have poor colour contrast 
  • Some pages are not easily navigable using only a keyboard 
  • Some error messages are not easily identified by assistive technology 
  • Some pages have non-sequential heading structures 
  • Some videos do not have transcripts 
  • Some videos present information only visually (not included in audio, captions or transcript) 
  • Some interactive modules have time limits for completion (which is only indicated visually) 
  • Some PDFs are not accessible.

Enforcement procedure 

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the ‘accessibility regulations’).

Technical information about this website’s accessibility 

The Information Security team, The University of Oxford is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018. 

Compliance status 

The website has been tested against the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA standard. 

This website is not compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard. The non-compliances are listed below. 

Non-accessible content 

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons. 

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations 

  • Some pages have duplicate titles. This may make it difficult for users to orient themselves and find the right content. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.2 (Page Titled).  
  • Completion status of individual components within modules is only indicated through the use of colour. This may present challenges to some users who are colour blind or visually impaired.  This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.1 (Use of Colour).  
  • Some pages have poor colour contrast between text and background. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.3 (Contrast (Minimum)).   
  • Tabbing order is not always logical on some pages and the focus indicator is not always present.  This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.3 (Focus Order). 
  • On some pages textual information (e.g. video duration) can be cut-off at zoom magnification above 150%. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.4 (Resize Text). 
  • When viewing a training module, there are broken ARIA references in the Course Contents. An aria-labelledby or aria-describedby reference exists, but the target for the reference does not exist. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 (Name, Role, Value) 
  • In some modules, completion status alerts are indicated by a disappearing popover which may present challenges to assistive technology users and those with visual impairments. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.3 (Status Messages). 
  • Within some training modules, there is no programmatical association between the course section name and the training type (video/interaction/communication) which may cause issues with assistive technology tools. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1 (Info and Relationships). 
  • Some text in the Course Details tab within a module may not be accessible to assistive technology.  This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1 (Info and Relationships). 
  • Whilst many of the training videos provide transcripts and captions, some do provide visual textual information only within the media itself, i.e., that information is not included in the audio or transcript. Some videos are also lacking transcripts. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criteria 1.2.1 (Audio-only and Video-only). 
  • Some of our interactive training modules are inaccessible to keyboard users and assistive technology users due to multiple problems with keyboard navigation, error handling and the use of colour to indicate high, medium and low priority issues.  This fails multiple WCAG 2.1 success criteria including 1.3.1 (Info and Relationships), 1.3.2 (Meaningful Sequence), 1.4.1 (Use of Colour), 2.1.1 (Keyboard) and 3.3.1 (Error Identification). 
  • Some of our PDFs are not marked up or tagged correctly.  Additionally, users on Connect PCs may encounter issues opening the embedded PDFs in Firefox. The workaround is to use the Chrome browser, but we appreciate that may not be preferable for some assistive technology users who use Firefox.  This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1.

What we’re doing to improve accessibility 

We are expediting the process to improve accessibility with the developer, MetaCompliance. In the interim, we will provide alternative provisions.  

Preparation of this accessibility statement 

This statement was prepared on 24 January 2024. It was last reviewed on 29 January 2024. This website was last tested on 08 December 2023 against the WCAG 2.1 AA standard. 

The test was carried out taking a headline approach to look at a number of key screens against common WCAG success criteria and a mixture of manual and automated testing tools were used by our internal team.
