This website is run by Creative Media, a department within The University of Birmingham. 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 300% without the text spilling off the screen
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 (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)
We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible:
you cannot modify the line height or spacing of text
certain parts of of our online forms are difficult to navigate using just a keyboard, specifically the date pickers

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

Some of our interactive forms are difficult to navigate using a keyboard.
Our forms are built with third party software (plugins) and ‘skinned’ to look like our website.
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
We do not plan to further develop accessibility features in our 360 imagery and video because it is built using third party software and is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
We do not incorporate online maps into this website.
