Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Back to top

HONORLOGIC is committed to making this website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

Compliance Status

Back to top

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version (WCAG) 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.

Additional accessibility considerations

Back to top

Although our goal is WCAG 2.1 AA conformance, we have also applied some level AAA success criteria: Images of text are only used for decorative purposes.

Non-accessible content

Back to top

We formally test the accessibility of key user journeys that represent the breadth of content across our website on a regular basis against WCAG 2.1 AA standards

Some parts of the website may not work for everyone. Below are known issues that we either need to fix, cannot fix, or do not need to fix right now.

If you find something that does not work that we missed, remember to contact us.

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Back to top

The site is compatible with:

  • Internet Explorer (down to IE11)
  • Chrome
  • Firefox
  • Safari
  • All other major browsers

The accessibility of the HONORLOGIC website relies on the following technologies to work with the particular combination of web browser and any assistive technologies or plugins installed on your computer:

  • HTML
  • CSS
  • JavaScript

These technologies are relied upon for conformance with the accessibility standards used.

Despite our best efforts to ensure accessibility of the HONORLOGIC website, there may be some limitations. Below is a description of known limitations, and potential solutions. Please contact us if you observe an issue not listed below.

This section covers issues that we need to fix and are working to do so.

  1. Colour Contrast on Breadcrumbs: The current page shown on the breadcrumbs doesn’t conform with the AA standards as there is a clear and accessible title on each page, meaning less importance is given to the breadcrumb.
  2. Labels on form inputs: Forms are created using an external plugin; therefore, we have no access or ability to chance the mark-up of these input fields.
  3. Issues with Excel documents: Some downloadable documents include merged cells.
  4. Issues with images, videos and other media: Some images on our website don’t have appropriate alternative text. Some videos and audio on our website do not have the required caption controls or transcriptions available. The regulations don’t require us to publish fully accessible video and audio content until new content is created after September 2020. 

Disproportionate burden

Back to top

This section covers issues that we cannot fix right now. We’ve assessed the cost of fixing these issues but believe that doing so would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the law.

Not applicable.

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

Back to top

This section covers issues that we do not need to fix right now. The law calls these exemptions.

Not applicable.

Third party content

Back to top

Our website may contain third-party content. We do not have control over and are not responsible for the accessibility of this content, but we make best endeavours to work with the third party to improve its accessibility. This may include:

  • Links to non-HONORLOGIC websites
  • Content/functionality on our website
  • Content hosted on other websites, such as social media sites.

Some of our third-party partners publish their own accessibility statements:

  • We are supporting the public sector initiative to add third party statements to a central repository (SearchBOX). This will make it easier for us to share the statements we create and encourage suppliers to help us by creating accessibility statements for their own content by default.

Preparation of this accessibility statement

Back to top

HONORLOGIC assessed the accessibility of this website using the following approaches:
