The Scottish Human Rights Commission is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability. We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website and in doing so adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines. We welcome any comments, suggestions or feedback you have for us.
This website endeavours to conform to level Double-A of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly for everyone. We are aware that we can always do more and below we have outlined some areas that could be improved:
Video: Where we have video on the site we use the YouTube player. We know that this is not universally accessible and while we do not provide captioning we have provided transcripts of all our videos to ensure that the content of the video is accessible by all.
PDF files: We have some of our publications available in PDF format, which are not accessible to some users. Therefore, where possible we have tried to also include a version in Word.
If you have any comments, suggestions or feedback on the accessibility of our site, please feel free to contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
