Accessibility statement for the National Infrastructure Commission for Wales (NICW)

This accessibility statement applies to this website.

This website is run by David Clubb and the NICW Secretariat on behalf of NICW. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • 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. However some of the information that we produce is technical in nature and may be challenging for people without experience in issues of infrastructure.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability. We regret that AbilityNet does not provide advice for users of Linux or OpenBSD.

How accessible this website is

We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible:

  • you cannot change colours, contrast levels and fonts directly from the website
  • you cannot modify the line height or spacing of text
  • most older PDF documents are not fully accessible to screen reader software

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

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

Compliance status

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the exemptions listed below.

Disproportionate burden

  • We are unable to provide additional formats such as accessible PDF, large print, easy read, audio recording or braille
  • Some legacy reports or publications may be available in PDF format only; we intend that future reports will be published as HTML as well as PDF documents, but we do not have the resource to improve our legacy document accessibility.

We’ve assessed the cost of fixing the issues with navigation and accessing information. We believe that doing so now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations. This is because we currently have no dedicated web manager resource.

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

We are intending that future publications are available in HTML as well as PDF.
