This accessibility statement applies only to https://www.agrecalc.com/.

The website allows disabled users to find out more information about Agrecalc and to discover information and resources regarding a comprehensive farm carbon calculator that will allow everyone to analyse their operation’s carbon footprint and pave the way to environmentally friendly and efficient food production systems.

This website is run by the Agrecalc team. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • zoom in up to 100% without the text spilling off the screen
  • the text will reflow in a single column when you change the size of the browser window
  • you can navigate online forms using just a keyboard

 

We have also made the website text as simple as possible to understand to users likely to require the services described on this website.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

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

 

Compliance status

The website is partially compliant, meeting most requirements of the WCAG 2.1 AA standard.

Non-compliances – this means the content in question is in scope of the regulations, but there’s an accessibility problem with it, which is on our roadmap as an issue to be addressed in the near future.

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

Non-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons: 

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations.

Some images do not have a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content).

We plan to add text alternatives for all images by spring 2023. When we publish new content, we’ll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.

Navigation and accessing information

There’s no way to skip the repeated content in the page header (for example, a ‘skip to main content’ option).

It’s not always possible to change the device orientation from horizontal to vertical without making it more difficult to view the content.

Although care has been taken to avoid content overlapping, sometimes that can happen. It’s not possible for users to change text size without some of the content overlapping.

Interactive tools and transactions

Some of our interactive forms are difficult to navigate using a keyboard. For example, because some form controls are missing a ‘label’ tag.

We’re working on rectifying this issue.

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

PDFs and other documents

Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs with information on how users can access our services, and forms published as Word documents. Replacement of these (where feasible) accessible HTML pages is on our roadmap.

Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
