We want as many of you as possible to be able to use our 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
  • Jump to content, including the search box, menus and the main content area
  • Read captions in videos we publish

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

How accessible our website is

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

The embedded Twitter feed on our homepage does not fully comply with colour contrast guidelines.

If you’re not happy with how we respond to your complaint, contact the Equalities Commission for Northern Ireland (ECNI)

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

Live video

We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
