Accessibility Statement

The University of Wales Trinity Saint David is committed to ensure that all information and resources provided via the Website are accessible to all users.

The University has taken steps to support the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) and continues to improve accessibility to Web based services.

This initiative includes the use of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) embedded in HTML 5 Web pages validated using the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) validation service.   

The University aims to satisfy a minimum of Conformance Level "AA" of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 1.0, with Conformance Level “AAA” being strived for in all new University Website developments.

Steps Taken to Improve Accessibility

Here are some steps we’ve taken to improve accessibility on our Web pages:

  • Using meaningful alt tags on all images and graphics
  • Using appropriate heading tags (H1, H2, H3 etc)
  • Using sufficient contrast on colours
  • Continuing to test web page for accessibility on different devices such as smart phone and tablets.
  • Publishing pages generated from valid HTML templates created and tested by the Web team
  • Using CSS to allow the separation of style and content
  • Providing alternative content where page elements are not accessible/unsupported
  • Communicating best practice to all University web editors, encouraging the use of appropriate headings and clearly labelled links.
