Accessibility statement for Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences showcase website
This accessibility statement applies to the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences showcase website creativeshowcase.aru.ac.uk.
This website is run by Anglia Ruskin University. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:
- change colours, 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), if you add image captions
We’ve 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.
How accessible this website is
We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible:
- you cannot skip hidden content when navigating with a keyboard

Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Anglia Ruskin University is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
You cannot skip hidden content when navigating with a keyboard. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criteria 2.4.7 (Focus visible). We plan to fix this by 31 January 2021
The people carousel cannot be navigated without a mouse. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criteria 2.1.1 (Keyboard). We plan to fix this by 31 January 2021
The introductory video and people carousel cannot be paused. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criteria 2.2.1 (Timing Adjustable) and 2.2.2 (Pause, Stop, Hide). We plan to fix this by 31 January 2021
Some images are not coded as meaningful or decorative. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criteria 1.1.1 (Non-text content). We plan to fix this by 31 January 2021
Some audio and video content does not have a transcript. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criteria 1.2.1 (Audio-only equivalent). We plan to fix this by 31 January 2021
Some video content does not have captions. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criteria 1.2.2 (Captions (pre-recorded)). We plan to fix this by 31 January 2021
Hidden ARIA elements contain focusable elements. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criteria 1.3.1 (Info and Relationships). We plan to fix this by 31 January 2021
Headings programmatic level and visual level do not always align. Some hover items share the same font family with H3s. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criteria 1.3.1 (Info and Relationships) and 2.4.1 (Bypass Blocks). We plan to fix this by 31 January 2021
The hero video does not programmatically convey meaning. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criteria 1.4.5 (Images of Text). We plan to fix this by 31 January 2021
Our video content does not contain audio descriptions. We've assessed the cost of implementing these. We believe that doing so now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations. We will make an assessment on an ongoing basis as new video content is commissioned.
