All images and images of buttons have an appropriate alt text for people using screen readers. In some case, there is also a title text to improve usability on the site. Decorative images should have null alt=“” and won’t be announced by screen readers.
Rich media (embedded YouTube videos)
We aim to provide captions on all our own YouTube video content. When we want to share other individual’s or organisations’ video content, if the YouTube video has not been accurately captioned, we will provide a link rather than embed the video on a page.
User-generated (third party) content
We have used a Twitter widget feed on our latest news page. Changes have been made to ensure the content is accessible for keyboard users.
We have implemented a number of changes on the site that allow keyboard users to navigate around the site logically.
We offer a live chat service for people affected by crime. This service is delivered through third party software, WhosOn. Currently there are limited customisation options available on this platform. We will be working with the supplier to find ways to improve accessibility and customisation.
Links to other sites
This site has links to resources on other websites. Whilst we do our best to check the content on these links is relevant, appropriate and accessible, we cannot guarantee that it will be at all times.
