Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
There is a menu button that is presented at the top left side of the screen that does not activate when enter is pressed. This fails WCAG 2.1.1 Keyboard (A).
Time off List
When a user of JAWS screen reader moves to view the Time off List information of a staff member, using the Headings command to navigate between Time off, Present, Past 3 months, and Earlier moves the page off of the screen. The information is still there, but the user, if they had sight, would not be able to see any information when moving through each section. A refresh of the page rectifies this. Other screen readers do not have this issue. UCL is working with the manufacturer to fix this. This fails WCAG 3.2.1 On Focus (A).
When a user magnifies to 150% or above, the My Team information is lost from view. UCL is actively working to fix this issue. This fails WCAG 1.4.10 Reflow (AA).
Assignment info section
JAWS screen reader does not currently read the individual information in this section when the user tabs on to it. All other screen readers do. UCL is working with the manufacturer to get a fix. JAWS users can still read this section if use the read by word command (control plus left or right arrow).
At this time, we have not made any disproportionate burden claims.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
This section covers issues that we do not need to fix right now. The law calls these exemptions.
Our websites may contain third-party content. We do not have control over and are not responsible for the accessibility of this content, but we make best endeavours to work with the third-party to improve its accessibility. This may include:
- links to non-UCL websites
- content/functionality on our website
- content hosted on other websites, such as social media sites.
To help accessibility compliance across the sector, University College London supports searchBOX, a centralised, independent directory of third-party accessibility information.
searchBOX catalogues the contact information and accessibility statements of third-party suppliers, enables the sharing of community-generated accessibility statements, and allows users to map their supplier ecosystem.
Users can access third-party accessibility statements using the free searchBOX Finder service.
University College London encourages all our partners and suppliers to support this effort by ensuring that their accessibility information is included in the searchBOX directory.

We’ll pass this information to the web app owner who will review the issue, make sure it is included in our plan to fix issues and add it into the accessibility statement when it is next updated.
