Non-accessible content

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

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Colour contrast

Some of the text on our website doesn't have enough colour contrast against the background colour it sits on. This can make it difficult for some users to read.

Some areas affected include:

  • white text "Vision for Leeds" on an orange background on the homepage
  • the placeholder text in the search bar in the header

This fails WCAG 2.1 success criteria 1.4.3 Contrast (minimum) (A).

Invalid HTML mark-up

Some pages on our website have multiple instances of the same ID. The ID attributes is used to identify a component on the page and although you can have as many IDs on a page as you like each ID should be unique. IDs can be used to link to a certain point in the page and multiple use of this could cause confusion. One of the IDs being specified multiple times is "DataProvider".

This fails WCAG 2.1 success criteria 4.1.1 Parsing (A).

Images that serve as links with no accessible text

The Leeds City Council logo in the header has no accessible text available to screen reader users.

This fails WCAG 2.1 success criteria 4.1.2 Name, Role, Value (A) and 2.4.4 Link Purpose (In Context) (A).
