Technical information about this website’s accessibility  

Neuropool Ltd 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  

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to HTML buttons being used for links as listed below.

Non-accessible content  

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

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations  

The icons in the footer don’t have a name. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion WCAG 2.4.4 (Link Purpose (In Context)), WCAG 4.1.2 (Name, Role, Value).

We plan to resolve this and all the other associated problems with these icons by July 2021. When we publish new content we’ll make sure our use of icons meets accessibility standards.

The HTML buttons should be links. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion WCAG 4.1.2 (Name, Role, Value) and forces other errors due to the wrong markup being used.

We plan to have this resolved by July 2021. We’ve updated our style guide to explain the difference between a button and a link better.

The footer content appears in the main landmark. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion WCAG 2.4.1 (Bypass Blocks) and 1.3.1 (Info and Relationships).

We plan to have this resolved by July 2021.

There is a stray div start tag. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion WCAG 4.1.1: (Parsing).

We plan to have this resolved by July 2021, but currently we don’t know how it got there. It might be this is in the WordPress Theme and a disproportionate burden to resolve.

Disproportionate burden  

Hubspot forms are embedded into our site and they are a large part of our accessibility problem, we use Hubspot for our Customer Relationship Management (CRM) platform. We will submit these issues to Hubspot for them to resolve, in the mean time if you cannot use the forms, the email address in the footer is also a good way to contact us.   

We believe that doing so now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations. We will make another assessment when the supplier contract is up for renewal, likely to be in 6 months.

What we’re doing to improve accessibility  

The website is small now, so new content, including images, text changes and new pages will be tested for accessibility compliance before they go live. As new features are considered for development, we will include accessibility upfront in the process.
