Accessibility Statement

About WordPress

This accessibility statement applies to the Learning and Teaching hub, a website designed on the WordPress platform. The website is hosted by a third-party service (WP Engine) and is managed by the Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) team in the Centre for Learning & Teaching (CLT).

The Learning and Teaching Hub website is found at https://teachinghub.bath.ac.uk/.

The main purpose of the website is to provide information, instructional guidance and manage training events related to the support of colleagues who are engaged in teaching activities.

The website includes content such as text, images and video. The website pages are built using a WordPress theme called Kadence, and a Knowledge Base plugin called Heroic Knowledge Base.

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

Accessibility & WordPress

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
  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts using in-browser tools
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • access video captions to accompany narrated videos

How accessible is the Learning and Teaching Hub?

An accessibility ready theme (Kadence) has been used as the base for the website. However, we rely on the authors, of the content added to the site, to make deliberate choices about how their content is displayed. We will endeavour to follow good practice guidelines in accordance with WCAG 2.1 AA standards.

Which parts of the website are not accessible?

It is acknowledged that some content may not be fully accessible, depending on the technical skill of the person adding content to the site.

Guidance is available on accessibility from the Digital Accessibility page of this website.
