Accessibility Statement

This accessibility statement applies to the CCRC Application Form. There is a separate accessibility statement for the main GOV.UK website.

Using this online form

This form was built using MoJ Forms, a tool developed by the Ministry of Justice, and uses components from the GOV.UK Design System.

CCRC is responsible for the content of this online form. The Ministry of Justice is responsible for its technical aspects.

We want as many people as possible to be able to use this online form. 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 the form using just a keyboard
  • navigate the form using speech recognition software
  • listen to the form using a screen reader (including recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We’ve also made the text as simple as possible to understand.

Technical information about this online form’s accessibility

We are committed to making our online forms and services accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

Compliance status

This online form is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.

Non-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.

Non compliance with the accessibility regulations

  • Pages have no skip links. This issue may affect screen reader and keyboard users who use skip links to bypass repeated content such as headers and navigation menus to skip directly to the main page content.
  • The language attribute of the page has not been set in the HTML. This may cause confusion to screen reader users who may not be able to identify the primary language of the page in their journey.
  • Some pages may contain empty headings, including on the check answers page. As a result, screen reader users may have difficulty navigating these pages.
  • Some content may be cut off or appear truncated when zooming in. This issue may affect low-vision users navigating the form who use reflow settings to view web pages.

We plan to fix these issues by July 2021.

Preparation of this accessibility statement

This statement was prepared on 28 April 2021. It was last reviewed on 28 April 2021.

This form was last tested on 22 April 2021.

In order to test the compliance of all forms built using the MoJ Forms tool, the Ministry of Justice commissioned The Digital Accessibility Centre (DAC) to carry out a WCAG 2.1 AA level audit of a sample form. This included extensive testing by users with a wide range of disabilities. The audit was performed on 8 April 2021.

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

We will monitor the accessibility of this website on an ongoing basis and fix any accessibility issues reported to us.
