Measures to support accessibility

Fry-IT Ltd takes the following measures to ensure accessibility of Kaizen e-Portfolio:

Conformance status

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. Kaizen e-Portfolio is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.

Additional accessibility considerations

Although our goal is WCAG 2.1 Level AA conformance, within Kaizen e-Portfolio, we have also applied some Level AAA Success Criteria. In terms of colour contrast, we advise our users to aim for a minimum of 7:1 (AAA) contrast. Where images of text are used, they are only used for decorative purposes.

Known limitations for Kaizen e-Portfolio:

  1. Images uploaded by our users: Uploaded images may not always have text alternatives because although we advise users to attach meaningful text alternatives, we cannot always guarantee their quality. We aim to monitor and fix issues as they arise.
  2. Videos and audio embedded by our users: Embedded multimedia may not always have transcripts because although we advise users to provide transcripts of both audio and video uploaded to the site, we cannot always guarantee it. We continue to advise our users to ensure the presence of transcripts.
  3. Keyboard navigation: While most of Kaizen e-Portfolio is usable with just a keyboard, some parts are still under development and we aim to fix these issues as part of our regular development processes. Development sprints have accessibility testing periods built in.
  4. Third–party websites: Kaizen e-Portfolio may link to, or interface with, third party websites that we do not control. These third-party vendors may not have undertaken the same efforts that we have in order to comply with WCAG-2.1 AA standards.
