We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:
- change colours, contrast levels and fonts
- zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
- navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
- navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
- listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)
We've also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

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
This council 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-compliances and exemptions listed below.
The content that is not accessible is outlined below.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
- We may have some scanned PDF documents on our website e.g. our Annual Governance and Accountability Returns (AGARs). Scanned PDF documents do not comply with the Accessibility Regulations 2018 but these documents can be provided in an alternative format on request.
- Some PDF documents on our website do not meet accessibility regulations e.g. our newsletter is uploaded to the website in the format in which it is sent to the printers therefore the pages do not follow in logical order. Newsletters can be provided in an alternative format on request.
- Some images don't have text alternative (alt text) so the information in them isn't available to people using a screen reader. When we publish new content we will make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.
We don't categorise any of the accessibility issues on marketbosworth-pc.gov.uk as a disproportionate burden to fix within the meaning of the regulations with the exception of PDFs and other similar documents.
Content that's not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
3rd party products
- We use Google maps. These may not be accessible to some people. We will always provide the information by alternative means on request
The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they're not essential to providing our services.
