Website and database design is by Codev on behalf of Queen Square Library, UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:
We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
We know some parts of this website aren’t fully accessible, e.g.
Many of our older PDFs and Word documents don’t meet accessibility standards - for example, they may not be marked up so they’re accessible to a screen reader, and we have forms published as Word documents. By September 2020, we plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.
The accessibility regulations don’t require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services. For example, we don’t plan to fix old exhibition handouts
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
Images don’t have alternative text. We plan to add alt text to images by September 2020.
Some webpages do not use heading structures appropriately. We will fix this by September 2020.
The accessibility regulations don’t require us to make reproductions of items in heritage collections accessible
However, they do require us to make our search and browse functions accessible. We will be working with Codev to test our website and make these functions accessible by September 2020.
