Digital Learning accessibility statement

Using This Website

The Digital Learning website is run by the University of Derby. We want as many people as possible to be able to use the site and are committed to ensuring digital accessibility for people with disabilities. For example, that means:

  • You should be able to navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • You should be able to listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)
  • Most videos have captions that are synchronised with the audio
  • Most Videos with important visual information have audio descriptions
  • Most content that is communicated visually is available to assistive technologies
  • If styling is removed most content should remain in a logical order
  • Where possible we have tried to avoid using visual characteristics to communicate information
  • Where possible we have avoided using colour as the only way to convey some information
  • Page content will sometimes resize to a single column with no horizontal and vertical scrolling
  • Many important graphical objects, interface components, and states have a colour contrast of 3:1
  • Line height, spacing between paragraphs and letter and word spacing can often be changed without breaking anything

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability. AbilityNet is a UK charity that exists to change the lives of disabled people by helping them to use digital technology at work, at home or in education.
