Solent University 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 listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
The problems with zooming and with the request forms are intrinsic to Primo VE as developed by ExLibris. We believe the cost of replacing this system with one that is entirely accessible would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations. We will make another assessment when the supplier contract is up for renewal, likely to be in 2022.
The e-resources that are linked to here are outside the scope of this statement. Accessibility is a factor when purchasing decisions are made, and in addition, we run an accessible formats service, which you can register for via Access Solent.
Most of the accessibility issues need to be corrected by our vendor. We raise issues with them when appropriate. We aim to make sure that any customizations we deploy do not negatively impact accessibility (indeed, several of them are made specifically to improve accessibility). We will investigate ways to make it possible to copy the citation button using the keyboard only.
