This accessibility statement applies to
Wendover Parish Council strives to ensure that our services are accessible to people with disabilities. Wendover Parish Council has invested a significant amount of time and resources to help ensure that its website is made easier to use and more accessible for people with disabilities, with the strong belief that every person has the right to live with dignity, equality, comfort and independence.
Wendover Parish Council makes available the UserWay Website Accessibility Widget that is powered by a dedicated accessibility server. The software allows the Wendover Parish website to improve its compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1 A).
The wendover-pc.gov.uk accessibility menu can be enabled by clicking the accessibility menu icon that appears on the corner of the page. After triggering the accessibility menu, please wait a moment for the accessibility menu to load in its entirety.
The accessibility widget will allow you to access:
change contrast levels and fonts
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 have also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances and exemptions listed below.

There is no way to skip the repeated content in the page header (for example, a ‘skip to main content’ option).
It is not always possible to change the device orientation from horizontal to vertical without making it more difficult to view the content.
It is not possible for users to change text size without some of the content overlapping.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Wendover Parish Council is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
Content that is not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
PDFs and other documents
Many of our older PDF and Word documents do not meet accessibility standards - for example, they may not be structured so they are accessible to a screen reader.
Some of our PDF and Word documents are essential to providing our services. We plan to fix these by May 2022.
The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDF or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they do not contain essential information.
Any new PDF or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
