Technical information about this website's accessibility

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

Issues with PDFs and other documents

Many of our older PDFs and Word documents don't meet accessibility standards - for example, they may not be structured in a way that is accessible to a screen reader. This doesn't meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2.

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.

Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.

Issues with images, video and audio

Not that we know of.

Issues with interactive tools and transactions
