8. What we’re doing to improve accessibility

Accessibility roadmap

Our accessibility roadmap shows how and when we plan to improve accessibility on this website. (Teignbridge.gov.uk)

At the moment we have been focussing on the technical aspects of this site and the table below details our current scoring. We will update this regularly.

We are training our staff in accessibility and how to create accessible documents and are replacing documents based on how often they are accessed, whether they are intended for users of assistive technology and we hope to replace all documents with accessible versions where possible.

Our current automated testing only tests to WCAG 2.0. We are working with the supplier of this system to update it to WCAG 2.1
