Accessibility Statement for Togetherall website, as of 24/11/20.

Togetherall is committed to ensuring digital accessibility for people with disabilities. Our aim is to combine compelling user experiences with high levels of accessibility and inclusivity, so everyone can use our digital services, whatever their abilities or disabilities. This is informed by our social charter, to make sure all can access our services in a non-discriminatory way, so we can impact all our member’s lives, and provide benefits to those who commission us to provide this support. Our ongoing site development and content creation are guided by best-practice accessibility guidelines such as WCAG and ISO 30071-1.

 

Adapt your experience to your needs

While this site has been created to be usable ‘as is’, many people are likely to get the most accessible experience by customising their computer to suit their individual needs – for example: to get the site spoken to them, to change its colour scheme, or increase the size of its text.

If that sounds like it would be useful to you, we recommend you visit:  WAI’s Better Web Browsing: Tips for Customizing your Computer to read or watch videos of how these customisations (achieved by using accessibility features already on your computer, smartphone or tablet, or through installing assistive technologies) might suit you.

 

Limitations of this site’s accessibility

We have had expert accessibility testing done of our site, using the types of assistive technologies used by our users, to find any accessibility limitations in it. We have fixed most of the issues found, and we are working to fix these few remaining issues, with the aim to gain full WCAG 2.1 AA compliance:

  • The freeform drawing in the Brick Builder cannot be made accessible to blind or keyboard users. However, they can use the tool’s other 2 options – sharing an image or text – to express themselves in their posts. When community members post images at present there is not an option to add alt-text.
  • Some PDFs on the site are not fully tagged. The workflow that creates these PDFs is currently being reviewed to solve this issue.
  • Our Careers page also has a few accessibility issues – the logo is missing alt-text, it could be clearer what words are headings, and the colour-contrast of a few icons and status messages could be improved. These will be fixed in our project to move to a new third-party supplier for that page. In the meantime, if you have any difficulty with the page, email us at jobs@togetherall.com and we will handle your application or question via that route.
