本网站由波胆平台运营. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. 例如，这意味着你应该能够:
- zoom in (up to 300%) without the text spilling off the screen
- navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
- 使用屏幕阅读器(包括JAWS的最新版本)收听网站的大部分内容, NVDA and VoiceOver)
We're working to make website text as simple as possible.
We're confident that our website is largely very accessible; however, we know some parts are not:
- some areas may not be fully compatible with screen readers
- you may not be able to access all content by using the keyboard alone
- some text may not reflow in a single column when you change the size of the browser window or use certain levels of magnification
- 一些较老的文件(PDF, PowerPoint, Word)不能被屏幕阅读器软件完全访问
If you need information in a different format like accessible PDF, large print, Easy Read, 录音或盲文, please get in touch:
- 在线报告问题 myit.gm2day.com
- Email email@example.com
- Phone – regrettably we are unable to provide a phone service at present
We’ll reply to reports within one working day and will aim to provide a workable solution as soon as possible and no later than seven days.
University of Aberdeen,
The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2)《波胆网站》 (the ‘可访问性规定’). If you’re not happy with how we respond to your feedback, contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS).
Visiting us in person
Technical information about this website’s accessibility
该网站只部分符合 Web内容易访问性指南第二版.1 (WCAG) AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Text and page structure
Some of our written content and page structure is not accessible. Examples include:
- Meaningless link text e.g. “click here”
- Legacy pages that don’t reflow when zoomed or viewed in mobile devices
We constantly audit our site and address these issues as quickly as practicable when they are identified. Our remaining legacy websites that don’t reflow when zoomed are being migrated to new responsive templates or retired. Colour contrast is being audited as part of our template review. 波胆平台已经审查和修改了波胆平台的培训, 并将继续这样做, to provide specific guidance to our content editors and developers.
Many videos on our site don’t have transcripts or audio descriptions. 波胆平台正在根据优先级的顺序，审查、删除或解决这些问题. All new videos published since September 2020 have captions, 自动字幕或可访问的替代方案.
Many older PowerPoint, PDF and Word documents don’t meet accessibility standards, for example, they might not be structured in a way that's accessible to a screen reader.
We’re reviewing and removing or resolving these based on order of priority. All staff are made aware of accessibility legislation and offered support in the creation of accessible documents, for example via user guides. Guidance on creating accessible documents is included in MS Office training workshops and training materials as appropriate.
Please note that 某些文档可能超出了可访问性规则的范围.
Many images on our site don’t have alternative content and in most cases this is because they are purely decorative; however, 有些图片没有适当的替代内容, 还有一些将文本表示为图像. We’re addressing these issues through regular auditing and by providing specific guidance and training to our content editors.
Some forms are not correctly labelled and/or are not keyboard accessible. Our forms are being audited and identified issues are addressed; we have raised some of these with our third party supplier, Gecko, as noted in Appendix 2.
Content that’s not within the scope of the 可访问性规定
The 可访问性规定 don’t require us to fix documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services. 波胆平台的政策是，波胆平台发布的任何新文档都要符合可访问性标准. 任何对提供波胆平台的服务至关重要的文档将被修复或替换为一个可访问的HTML页面.
We don’t plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is 免除满足可访问性规则.
波胆平台确保在线地图尽可能通过, for example, providing addresses and geolocation information in an accessible form.
We’ve an ongoing University-wide commitment to improve accessibility and have put in place governance and support to establish a permanent culture of accessibility and inclusion. Accessibility work is overseen by a Digital Accessibility Working Group, comprising representative members from across the institution.
The University also takes the following measures to ensure accessibility:
- Accessibility is integrated into our procurement practices
- An accessibility officer will be appointed; at the time of writing this recruitment is paused due to Covid-19
This website is tested on an ongoing basis; manually by staff and also via automated testing using the tool Siteimprove. We prioritise work on conformance of our website based on two factors: volume of traffic (scale) and key user journeys.
We use this approach to decide areas for comprehensive testing.

The University website consists of many related sub-sites and systems. The University is responsible for the accessibility of these; some will have their own accessibility statements. 如果您遇到任何系统或站点的问题， 请使用上述资料与波胆平台联络.
大学为教职员工和学生提供各种移动应用程序. The University is responsible for the accessibility of these; some will have their own accessibility statements. 如果您遇到这些问题，请 请使用上述资料与波胆平台联络.
Mobile applications used in support of MyAberdeen are detailed in Appendix 1.
- Fact sheet on University Library facilities and services for disabled students
- Disability information 为波胆平台职员准备的
- eLearning accessibility
- 英国手语(BSL) - Action Plan 2018-2024
MyAberdeen使用了基于WCAG 2开发的Blackboard Learn VLE.1 Level AA. 波胆平台平台可访问性的更多细节，请参阅Blackboard页面 黑板学习的可及性 and their statement of commitment. 该大学还合并了 Ally as an integral part of the VLE which produces content in a number of alternative formats including audio, electronic braille, and ePub formats.
如果你想提出问题 or need information in a different format which has not been provided via Ally, please get in touch with your course tutor in the first instance. If they cannot resolve the issue, please contact the eLearning team at firstname.lastname@example.org or +44(0)1224 273765.
- Videos without closed captions, transcripts or audio descriptions
- Many PowerPoint, PDF and Word documents are not compliant
- Images without ALT tags
为了解决这些问题，波胆平台在全年为员工举办MyAberdeen培训课程. All staff are made aware of accessibility legislation and offered support in the creation of accessible documents. Guidance on creating accessible documents is included in MS Office training workshops and guides as appropriate.
The University has been looking at introducing video captions for videos to help make learning material more inclusive. 一些课程可能使用自动语音识别封闭字幕的视频, 如果这些产品的质量被认为“足够好”. However, some videos may not use these if staff feel the accuracy would be detrimental to the student experience (e.g. 语言及STEM学科). In such cases accessible alternative materials will be made available. Other courses may have quality assured captions for video in place. The University is committed to expanding the use of video captions and is introducing new processes and guidance to enable this to be provided more widely.
MyMBChB, MyBDS and MyPA are in-house developed virtual learning environments used by the Medical School and built by the Learning Technologies team. We are continually improving the user experience for all users of the application and are applying the relevant accessibility standards throughout.
The environments are partially compliant with the WCAG 2.1 AA standard.
- Meaningless link text e.g. “click here”
- Pages that don’t reflow when pinched or zoomed on mobile devices
- Videos without closed captions, transcripts, or audio descriptions
- 教学资产的PowerPoint, PDF或Word文档可能有访问问题
Occasionally the quality of unedited automatic captions for specialist terminology may be poor and academic staff may decide this is detrimental to students’ learning. In such cases automated captions may not be provided by default and accessible alternative materials will be provided while manual work takes place to provide accurate captioning.
MyMBChB的学生时间表无法使用屏幕阅读器进行有意义的阅读. However, an alternative accessible version is available via the ‘List View’ link which can be found in the timetable menu or from the tab button quick links.
We welcome your feedback on the accessibility of MyMBChB, MyBDS and MyPA. 如果你想提出问题, or need information in a different format such as an accessible PDF, large print, Easy Read, 录音或盲文, please contact the Learning Technologies team via email email@example.com or phone +44(0) 1224 437032.
MyMBChB, MyBDS and MyPA have integrations with the following systems:
图书馆,特殊的集合 & Museums Collections
图书馆,特殊的集合 & 博物馆(LSCM)为员工提供藏品, students and others which are primarily asset based (Word, PDF, PowerPoint及JPG文件). 波胆平台相信这些资产在很大程度上 如法例第3 (2)(a)及3 (2)(f)条所述获豁免. However, it is our intent to make our collections as accessible as possible and therefore we note below issues of which we are aware and actions we are taking to address these.
如果您遇到下列集合的问题，请发送电子邮件 firstname.lastname@example.org 波胆平台会尽力帮助你.
LSCM make available to students a database of past exam papers. This database can be interrogated using the Library search interface, Primo，或按主题区域浏览. 数据库中有一部分试卷不符合可访问性标准, as they are published in earlier formats of Microsoft Word.
We'll ensure that future papers are made accessible via staff training as noted elsewhere in this statement.
Research Archive (波胆平台研究档案 [AURA])
The University’s Research Archive is hosted by the University of Edinburgh using the open source solution, DSPace. 归档的资产绝大多数是PDF资产(c. 或Word docx文件(c. 1.5K) with small numbers of other formats such as PowerPoint, HTML and JPG. 其中许多资产将无法完全获得.
It is a current requirement of many research funders and the Research Excellence Framework that papers are submitted as PDF. We will ensure that future papers are made as accessible as possible via staff training as noted elsewhere in this statement. 波胆平台正在考虑未来使用开放文档格式来增加这个存档的可访问性.
LSCM使研究论文可以在线获得. These may be in PDF, 各种版本的Word或其他资产类型, 包括已弃用的字处理文件. 其中许多资产将无法获得.
eBooks and Journals
We'll ensure that future theses are made as accessible as possible via appropriate training and support for students.
We don't have a workaround for these exceptions at present.
Pure Research Portal
- 波胆平台的软件供应商继续努力使纯研究门户完全WCAG 2.1 AA compliant.
- 当前的网页可访问性声明可以阅读 http://abdn.pure.elsevier.com/en/web-accessibility/
波胆平台使用谷歌服务为站点的某些部分提供波胆网站功能. 波胆平台无法控制这些结果中使用的代码，这可能偶尔会导致问题. For example, 在谷歌的自定义波胆网站结果中返回的图像没有替代文本属性. Google commit to making accessibility a core part of their products 通常问题很快就解决了.
We’re aware that some browsers allow the iFrame element to receive focus, 但是不要把重点放在样式上, 所以对于一些用户来说, focus may be lost briefly when entering an iFrame element. 这一点在Firefox中最为明显.
Generic Link Text
We try to make all link text meaningful; however, parts of our site intentionally use generic link text; for example, "Find out more". We believe that where such link text is used the linked resource is unequivocally inferred from its surrounding context; for example, 新闻报道的进一步信息.
We’re aware that occasionally the same link text is used for links going to apparently different resources; for example, 单词“About”出现在页面内容中, 菜单栏和网站面包屑以各种方式链接到:
These links appear to be different, but are the same resource. We endeavour to standardise link URLs to avoid this false positive error, 但由于服务器和CMS数据库呈现页面的方式，这并不总是可能的.
