Accessibility Statement for

This website is run by Edinburgh Napier University.

We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website and are committed to making it accessible for users with disabilities. For example, that means you should be able to: 

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts 
  • 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.

How accessible is this website?

Edinburgh Napier University is committed to making its websites accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

We have developed this website to be compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard and it is currently being reviewed using automated evaluation tools.

Non-accessible content

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

PDFs and other documents

Some of our existing PDFs and Word documents are not fully accessible. Where possible, we display all essential information on our webpages; however, we also have documents such as user guides, policies and forms. The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services. If you require this content in a different format please contact us.

When we publish new PDFs or Word documents, we are committed to making make sure they meet accessibility standards.

Video content

All our video content on this website is accompanied by a transcript and/or captions. However, some pre-existing video on this website does not have audio description or uses a third party captioning function that is not always accurate. The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix issues with video content published before 23 September 2020.

We are aware that some third-party video content appearing on our site may not have adequate audio description or titles that are accessible to screen readers. As this functionality is provided by a third party supplier, it is outside of our control. However, we supply a video transcript alongside all embedded videos on the website.

If you require this content in a different format please contact us. When we publish new video content we’ll make sure videos meet accessibility standards.

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

We have formed a Web Accessibility Working Group to define and execute a strategic approach to accessibility across our websites. Content creators and editors are being trained to ensure new content is accessible. We will embed accessibility requirements in our procurement and service provision activity.
