We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • Use the application free of audio and video content

How accessible is the website

WebPA is an open source application created by Loughborough University. WebPA is no longer supported by the supplier and does not have any accessibility information on the supplier web pages, confirmation of WCAG compliance or an associated VPAT.

As WebPA is no longer supported, the application is not in line with up to date accessibility guidelines. As there is no documentation concerning the accessibility of WebPA is cannot be said to meet accessibility requirements.

What we do about known issues

We work to achieve and maintain WCAG 2.1 AA standards, but it is not always possible for all our content to be accessible. Where content is not accessible, we will state a reason, warn users and offer alternatives.
