Technical information about this website’s accessibility
The Medical Research Council Protein Phosphorylation and Ubiquitylation Unit 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 listed below.
- 1.3.1 – Info and Relationships – Some of our content has issues with logical structure, notably with tab stops. We plan to correct this by October 2020.
- 2.1.1 – Keyboard – Some of our content is not accessibly solely using a keyboard. We plan to correct this by October 2020.
- 2.4.3 – Focus Order – Some of our content has issues with logical focus ordering, notably with tab stops. We plan to correct this by October 2020.
- 1.4.3 – Contrast (Minimum) – The contrast ratios with some of our background design choices and text do not meet the required ratio of at least 4.5:1. We plan to correct this by October 2020.
We currently have no accessibility problems that we believe would be a disproportionate burden to fix
