We want as many people as possible to be able to use this service. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts

  • get from the start of the service to the end using speech recognition software
  • listen to the service using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We have also made the text in the service as simple as possible to understand.

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

Enforcement procedure

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the ‘accessibility regulations’).

Technical information about this service’s accessibility

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

This service 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.

When there are errors with a form you've submitted, a list of error messages is shown at the top of the screen. These error messages might be read out more than once if you're using a screen reader. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 (name, role, value).

The BETA banner and back button at the top of the service aren't contained within landmark regions. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1 (info and relationships).

These issues are caused by the GOV.UK layout which is shared across GOV.UK services. If these issues are fixed in the GOV.UK layout we'll incorporate the fixes into this service.
