How Scomis websites are organised
The Scomis ‘website’ is made up of several separate websites and services, covering different areas of our work. Each website has its own accessibility statement, to ensure we can properly describe the accessibility for each site or service.
This accessibility statement covers the main parent website for Scomis at www.scomis.org and does not cover the wider family of Scomis websites.
This website is run by Scomis. 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 using browser settings
- zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen using browser settings
- 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
We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
The My Computer My Way guide from AbilityNet (opens in new window) is a step-by-step guide to help you make your device easier to use if you have a disability.
If you would like information on our website translated into another language, you may find one of the services listed below meets your needs. However, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of any external website or free website translators.
How accessible is this website?
This website has been developed to be as accessible as possible. However, we know some parts of this website aren’t fully accessible:
- some older PDF documents aren’t fully accessible to screen reader software but will be updated on a rolling basis
- some images do not have a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information
- captions on some older videos are auto generated by YouTube and may not be completely accurate
- some content does not have enough contrast, so people with moderate visual impairments may struggle to read it
- some controls on pages – this may include links, buttons, and fields – do not show when they have been selected by the keyboard
- some of our online forms are difficult to navigate using just a keyboard
- some links are not distinct enough and may be difficult for people with moderate visual impairments to read
- some content may be difficult to navigate using a screen reader
